If you are looking for a great way to celebrate the first day of fall, while also getting some shopping done in Cedar Falls, this might be the event for you!

One of my favorite things about the town of Cedar Falls is all of the unique and creative people who call this place home. It seems like there are so many different opportunities throughout the year for you to check out some cool events and support local artists.

A unique craft fair is back again this year in the College Hill area. It's called the Pear Fair, and it features some amazing handmade craft and design items from artists all across the Midwest.

It was named after the founder, Mohair Pear who started this event in the spring of 2010, according to the official website.
