WEEKEND PICK: 33rd Annual Newburyport Fall Festival

Although it is to late to put an entry into the annual scarecrow contest at this Newburyport event; families can view the entries beginning at noon on Sunday. Winners will be announced at about 3 p.m.
Families should also take in a performance scheduled at the Kids Korner over the two-day festival, which continues on Monday. Kids Korner activities are sponsored by Honey Dew Donuts of Melrose, Newburyport Mothers Club, and Mary Jane & Janey Baby store. The area will also feature face painting and crafts.
On Sunday performing are:
* Brain Doser at 11 a.m.: Nothing but straight ahead music to get your child up and dancing. Be careful, you may find yourself singing along and not minding it!
* Madeline from Itsy Bitsy Zone at 12 p.m.: itsy bitsy zone emphasizes early childhood development using music, movement, art, and sign language as the vehicles.
* Rick Goldin at 2 p.m.: Kids like to have fun, and that's what Rick Goldin's music is all about. His songs feature lots of movement and child participation, and surprises and unexpected twists that keep even his youngest listeners paying close attention. Rick's performances and recordings are lively and interactive.

On Monday performing are:
* Master Puppeteer Martha Dana at 11 a.m.
* Local musician Peter Sheridan at noon
