You could have been forgiven for assuming that Saturday’s fun in downtown Overland Park came under the guise of a “Summer Festival.” With temperatures in the 80s by the time the parade route had filled with spectators, it was a hot one for sure. But that didn’t stop thousands of northeast Johnson County residents from taking in the fun of the city’s annual Fall Festival.

Photographer Andrew Poland shares these sights from the event.
