RICHFIELD — Fall hasn’t quite arrived yet, but residents in Richfield got a jump on the change of seasons at Fall Fest, held at Eastwood Preserve Sept. 14.

Those who attended had the chance to take a hayride, as shown at bottom, with Mark Jocek driving the tractor. Lisa and Rich Durst, who are pictured at right, also enjoyed spending time together at the event, which featured freshly roasted corn on the cob.

The event also featured an emphasis on bees and the importance of the insects. Beekeeper Peggy Garnes, of Medina, is shown above giving a demonstration on beehives. She also explained the differences between honeybees and yellow jackets, noting that honeybees only sting if they need to defend themselves.

The event also featured vendors with local honey for sale.
