FALL FESTIVAL FUN: On October 14, Cooperstown Center on Phoenix Mills Cross Road in Cooperstown held its region-wide October Fall Festival for kids, families, their residents, and businesses alike. The popular event brought out a few hundred people, with games, dancing, live music, and face painting for all to enjoy. The 174-bed nursing home made sure to have three community food trucks (S&S Food Truck, Big Al’s BBQ of New York, and Good Morning Food Truck) offering all sorts of barbecue, deli foods, and sandwiches. By the end of the day, there wasn’t a bite left, organizers said. \"Cooperstown Center wants to be closer to our community, and having a great time with the families and businesses here does just that,\" said Cooperstown Center Administrator Jo Peterson. \"From this experience, we are thinking of doing this annually, since everyone loved the games, food and, of course, the dancing!\" The Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard also provided food and their famous fall cider. Peterson said the kids especially loved that the Utica Zoo was on hand to provide Cooperstown Center residents and community members up-close experiences with exotic animals such as snakes and lizards.
