In anticipation of large crowds coming to Hannibal this weekend for the Autumn Historic Folklife Festival, the Hannibal Convention and Visitors Bureau is making it easier to get to and from the festivities.
The Autumn Historic Folklife Festival in Hannibal has become one of the most loved annual events in the region. The festival is nearly 40 years old. Vendors, performers, residents and visitors will all converge on Hannibal's Main Street for the 2015 edition of the Folklife Festival October 17-18.
The 39th annual Autumn Historic Folklife Festival descends upon downtown Hannibal Saturday and Sunday, October 17 and 18, and the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum will be right in the middle of the action.
The month of October is filled with kids in costumes, adults in costumes, lots of candy, pumpkins, and even a few of the year's biggest events! Here's a look at fun things to do around the Quincy/Hannibal area in October 2015.
Fall is on its way. Kids are back in school, football season is here, leaves will be changing soon, and Hannibal's Autumn Historic Folklife Festival is scheduled to take over Main Street for its 39th year.
