Among other activities planned for Saturday are the Lions Club Pancake Breakfast (7–10 a.m.) and the Peach Recipe Contest (Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m.) both at Palisade Memorial Park, a 3- and 5-mile run, a car show and a parade (9 a.m. downtown).

On Sunday, consider participating in the Peach Fest Pedal-Paddle-Pedal (8 a.m. at Riverbend Park) or browsing the Palisade Sunday Farmers Market (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. downtown).
