The fourth annual Beggar’s Walk at Heritage Canyon was deemed a success by the Early American Crafters.

Organizers estimated at least 900 children and 400 to 500 adults attended the event on Oct. 20. Many local volunteers, including the Girl Scouts, Sparkettes, Fulton High School Thespians, Ralph North and several Early American Crafters, provided assistance.

The event continues to grow, and organizers realize parking is a problem at Heritage Canyon because of its residential location. Event organizers wish to apologize to those who received a parking ticket. The Early American Crafters and city of Fulton are working to settle the issue for future events.

For next year’s Beggar’s Walk, a shuttle bus will be provided, and the Fulton Police Department will assist with directing traffic.

The Early American Crafters wish to thank everyone for attending and supporting the Beggar’s Walk. The next event is Christmas at Heritage Canyon from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 1, with an illuminated walk from 6 to 8 p.m.

Note to readers – Donna Smith was the event chairwoman.

Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
