The Ohio Bird Sanctuary at 3774 Oreweiler Road hosts its 10th annual Fall Family Festival, and first-ever "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" events this Saturday. The festival runs from 11 am to 5 pm, with the walk from 2-5. Director Gail Laux says the festival features kids' crafts, live bird shows, Columbus Zoo animals from 2-3 pm, and a camp fire and story teller. The walk is 1 1/2 miles with 8 challenges. Ribs and chicken will be provided by a new local business, Smokin' Bros BBQ. Admission for the Fall Family Festival is $10 per carload. Admission for the Walk on the Wild Side is $25 for adults, $15 for children under thirteen, with kids under age four free. Both serve as a fund-raiser for completing the new raptor cage. If enough money is raised Saturday, the roof should be done within two weeks. Three birds are waiting to move in.
