SARATOGA SPRINGS — Fall Fun Day, an annual fundraiser by The Waldorf School of Saratoga Springs, returns Oct. 14 at Pitney Meadows Community Farm, celebrating the fall season with activities, food, live music, animals, and more.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m, offering fall-themed activities such as hayrides with a horse-drawn carriage, sheep shearing, pumpkin painting, and more. Waldorf School assistant administrator Danielle Arenas said Fall Fun Day is “an all-around fun time for the whole family.”

“The fall festival really is one of the most long-standing events that Waldorf has done,” said Arenas. “Our staff will be there, we get a lot of volunteers as well from families. Different parents come, alumni. It’s events that they have gone to in the past, and they enjoy coming back.”

Other activities will include an apple press, drum circle, live music, food vendors, and more, Arenas said.

“We’re going to have a hay jump, a couple different craft tables led by our teachers here at Waldorf,” Arenas said. “We are also going to be having a hay ride. … We’re going to have Seth and the Moody Melix for music. We’ve got a couple different food options as well.”

Entry for adults is $5, and $3 for children, while those aged 2 and under are admitted for free, according to a press release, which also states some of the attractions offered at Fall Fun Day are ticketed.

Funds raised will support Waldorf’s tuition assistance program, the release states, while Arenas also said that funds benefit the school’s early childhood programs and lower grades.

“We did, just this past year, open up our early childhood program on Lake Avenue,” said Arenas. “So proceeds really are going to go to benefit building up the lower grades.”

More information on Fall Fun Day can be found at Arenas emphasized Fall Fun Day is “a community event,” providing fall activities for families in Saratoga and beyond.

“We want it to be a community event,” Arenas said. “We definitely want it to be, not just for Waldorf, but for everybody.”
