Oct. 25, 2010 - PRLog -- November is an inviting time to visit DeKalb County. Cooler weather and colorful fall foliage provide an ideal setting for a handful of festivals the first and second weekends of the month where festival goers are entertained with a celebration at the Little River Canyon Center, an Indian Pow Wow, turkey toss, and many more family-friendly activities.

Art, science, nature and fun come together Saturday, November 6 in celebration of Little River Canyon. Canyon Fest offers a day of live music, dance, nature, films, art, activities, and fun for the entire family. Dozens of artists and exhibitors will be on hand offering demonstrations and selling their work. NASA will present a traveling space theater. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and all activities are held at the Little River Canyon Center located at 4322 Little River Trail NE (472 Alabama Highway 35) in Fort Payne. There is no admission fee, but donations supporting the Little River Canyon Center are always welcome.

Hosted by the Cherokee Tribe of North Alabama, the Wills Creek Pow Wow is set for November 13-14 at the VFW Fairgrounds located at 135 18th Street Northeast in Fort Payne. Exhibition dancing, flute playing, arts and crafts, and competition drumming are just a few of the activities slated for the weekend event. Gates open at 10 a.m. both days with grand entry at noon and admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children age 13-17, and free for children under 12, Active Military, and seniors 62+.

The Collinsville Historic Turkey Trot is set for Saturday, November 13. The day-long event features an antique car and tractor show, a turkey shoot, cake walk, and a 5K run, but what makes this event truly unique is the historic “turkey toss” from the roof of a building in downtown Collinsville. Sponsored in part by the Collinsville Historic Association, hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and admission is free. All activities are held in and around historic downtown Collinsville.
