PHOTOS: Fall Leaf Festival

Posted By on Mon, Oct 28, 2013 at 10:56 AM

The City of Spokane held its Fall Leaf Festival at Finch Arboretum on Saturday. Children played in a large pile of leaves while their parents took photos and sometimes participated in the fun. Those who attended learned how to compost from the Spokane Master Composters, learned about conservation at various informational booths, and enjoyed the fall foliage around the park.
