Fall festival returns to brick streets — Festive is again the focus as colorful quilts and handmade crafts from Oklahoma artists and unique vehicles of all kinds come together for a fall festival in Pauls Valley.

Coming to the downtown streets are the combined events of the Oklahoma Heritage Quilts and Arts Festival and yet another version of a car show spearheaded by Pauls Valley's police officers.

The two events wrapped up into one will put PV center stage on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Adding to it all on that day is a special drug education program by the county sheriff’s office, complete with two drop off sites for unwanted medications.

The action is set to get started early in the morning, around 9 a.m., for an event that one Main Street Pauls Valley official says is getting more and more attention each time around.

“It's been growing each year,  and we should have an enjoyable event this year,” said Main Street director Samantha Robb.

It again centers around the Arts and Cultural Center located at the corner of Paul and Walnut streets.

“With this event we're trying to create something with crafts and arts that are all about being from Oklahoma,” Robb said.

“It's centered around arts and quilts.”

All vendors at the event must be from Oklahoma and make their crafts by hand. In the past there have been such items as artistic rag dolls, wooden toys and jewelry.

“You never know what you're going to get,” she said. “There could be fine art or hand-woven baskets.”

With the festival again featuring quilts, Robb said there will be another special activity to help patrons get into the spirit of things.

“With the quilt walk we're trying to get people to come downtown and see these quilts displayed in both the Arts and Cultural Center and the different businesses.”

Another part of the festival popular in the past will return to highlight the special talents of people willing to take the stage.

It's called the Got Talent contest.

The last audition for potential contestants is set from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24 at the Arts and Cultural Center.

Missing from this year's festival will be a high school marching contest, which has been postponed until October because of a scheduling situation.

More on the 17th annual Pauls Valley Police Officers Car Show and the sheriff’s drug education program on Sept. 29 will be the next couple of editions of the Pauls Valley Democrat.
