As we head into September, I wanted to share some things that are happening around Walton over the next few weeks.

  • Walton First Fridays ("Your favorite spots open late!") will have it's "First Friday" on September 2nd, 4:00-8:00pm. Some of the businesses open late this night are: Doog Goods, KIPNZ Gallery, Yarn Over Crafts and Hobbies, The Evolution Store, and YOLO Mercantile. Caroline Fay's Big Little Art Studio (BLAS) will also be having an open studio.
  • Bovina Farm Day is Sunday, September 4th, 10:00-5:00.
  • KIPNZ has an open call for local artists for two shows.
  • Build-a-Bouquet at Birdsong Farms on September 8th @ 6:00pm. An event in support of Eric Ball, a local candidate for State Senate. Free event, donations encouraged.
  • The Walton Farmers' Market continues Fridays from 11:00-3:00 through the end of September, though September 2nd will be the last market with live music (duo Bea Summers & Barb Acker).
  • The Walton Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Party on the Plaza on September 3rd. Vendor marketplace and kids carnival games, plus live music most of the day.

  • School starts September 7th.
  • And since school is starting, the kids program at the library is also resuming. More information about this and other library events in the September newsletter from the Ogden Library.
  • Walton Walks for Hunger (sponsored by the Walton Ministerial Association) will be held Sunday, September 25th this year. Get a pledge sheet from any church or Studio 190 if you're walking, or consider sponsoring a friend or neighbor. Most of the money raised stays in our community.
