October 30 can be a busy and fun day to enjoy two public events within miles of one another.

The Mildale Farm Fall Fest, 35250 W. 199th St., Edgerton, will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. featuring a number of fall activities.

Visitors will be directed to park in the large parking lot near Mildale Farm’s main barn which features peg construction and a handlaid brick floor.

While District fishing permits have been waived for the Fall Fest, anglers 16 and older will still need to have a valid Kansas fishing license.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Lanesfield School Historic Site Fall Open House at 18745 S. Dillie Rd., Edgerton, is celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail with old-fashioned fun.

Hands-on activities include the Missouri Town Band, outdoor games and lessons in the schoolhouse with costumed teachers. Both events are free.
