It's going to be a busy weekend in the Tri-States this coming weekend, but one festival you need to visit is the Annual Folklife Festival in Hannibal.

This is one of my favorite festivals of the year. My family and I go each year to get our cup of homemade chicken noodle soup, pretzels, caramel apples, and root beer. We eat well when we go. This is the 46th Annual festival and will take place on Saturday (10 am - 5 pm) and Sunday (10 am - 4 pm) and will showcase Hannibal's rich history with artists, food, music, entertainment, and more.

Hannibal Arts has been putting on the festival throughout the years and has been voted one of the favorites to attend by many people.

The themed festival has been voted Favorite Festival in the area many times, consistently draws thousands of visitors from the Midwest region and hosts over 100 exhibitors. A great time to be in Hannibal!

I highly recommend attending this festival I promise you will not be disappointed. It's also a good time to do a little shopping downtown (the festival is set up on Main Street in Downtown Hannibal). There is plenty to do this weekend with the Tindusters in town, the Quincy Preserves Fall Home Tour, Octoberfest Marching Band Competition, but if I were you I would make time to drive to Hannibal and enjoy the Folklife Festival this year.
