hop on board a shuttle bus at the Pendleton County Library on
Main Street, downtown Falmouth. Shuttle buses will be running
between the Pendleton CountyHigh/Pendleton County
Public Library every 1/2 hour! Due to the nature of the festival and the many livestock and animal exibits we ask that you leave your pets at home.
