SOUTH AKRON — Donzell’s Fall Festival, 937 E. Waterloo Road, will usher in the season with a variety of activities Sept. 22-23.

The 12th annual family event will accept donations to benefit One of a Kind Pet Rescue, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving animals, rescuing pets in imminent danger of euthanasia, spaying/neutering and adoption of homeless animals, according to Donzell’s officials.

The event will offer Halloween displays and fall decorating ideas, as well as the following:
