By Jeff Sovelove

The leaves are begging to turn and the days are supposed to be getting cooler– which signals it’s time for the annual Bottle Hill Day in Madison. 

A large crowd turned out on a bright sunny Saturday for the street fair that featured a rock climbing wall, games for the kids, food, and an antique car show.

Attendees could listen to a number of area bands,  including Sunnyside Jazz and Rosewood, just to name a couple. 

There was everything from a beer garden to Thai French food, hot dogs and hamburgers, kettle corn, the Empanada Guy, and a number of other food trucks and booths. 

Activities for the kids included rides, a petting zoo, karate demonstrations, and pony rides.  A good time was had by all.
