Nevis Fall Festival returns – Park Rapids Enterprise

After being absent for several years, the Nevis Tigers PTA brought back the Fall Festival.

With highs in the 20s, families gathered inside to have fun Sunday afternoon, Oct. 29.


First grader Brayden Klasen of Akeley loves dinosaurs. He came to the Nevis Fall Festival riding a T-Rex. Each child who filled their punch card by completing activities in the school gym received a goodie bag to take home.

Children got the chance to show off their costumes, play games and jump and slide in the inflatables in the gym.


Sister and brother Reeve Just and Briggs Husby posed for a photo to remember their time together at the Nevis Fall Festival. Reeve came as a Monarch butterfly and Briggs, who is a history buff, as a World War I soldier, complete with gas mask.

At the end of the event, children turned in their activity punch card for a free bag of prizes.


All bundled up to come in out of the cold for her first Fall Festival, 6-month-old Edalyn Wenschlag is the daughter of Rhea and Willie Wenschlag of Menahga.
