MORGANTOWN -

The Children's Fall Festival at the West Virginia Botanical Garden is a yearly event that brings the whole family together.

Kids made art work, did some gardening, and even help put together a bird feeder. The best part is it's totally free.

"It's one of the few activities in the area that's really truly for kids that doesn't just kill the pocket book to get here,"said Ellen Hrabovsky, event coordinator.

The day is centered around kids being able to see the gardens and do fun, nature themed activities with their families.

The biggest event of the day was the fairy house building. Kids collected leaves, sticks, whatever they can find to build a warm place for the fairies to stay during the winter.

Kids visited the "Gnome Depot" to add some decorations to their fairy houses after they're built. Volunteers helped put the event together. Seasonal refreshments including homemade cookies, pumpkin bread, and hot apple cider which were donated.

"First and foremost it's a beautiful day. I think it's a great opportunity for the kids to do crafts and also give back to the community, they're accepting donations. This is a wonderful event put on by great people," said Matt Houghton.

The West Virginia Botanic Garden Board plans to hold the event for many more years.
