A busy week in Piedmont will be followed by an action-packed weekend. Here are the main events for Saturday and Sunday: 

Running and walking for wellness:
 The third annual Fallfest 5K Run/Walk through Piedmont's streets raises funds for the school district's Wellness Center. There's still time to register online here. Ages 12 and up, $30; children $20. Saturday, Sept. 28, with check-in and in-person registration starting at 7 a.m. at the Piedmont Community Hall, 711 Highland Ave., and the race starting at 8:30 a.m. An awards ceremony in Piedmont Park follows the race.

Piedmont's favorite community party — the 2013 Harvest Festival: One of the year's don't-miss local events, the festival returns with lots of traditional favorites: a carnival, live jazz, scarecrows, lemonade from Piedmont-grown fruit. At the edibles contest, check out Piedmonters' marmalade, fruit butter, biggest pumpkin, flavored butter and not-quite-edible bug hotels. Festival details are here. This year also features a public safety mini-fair with adoptable dogs from The Milo Foundation. Sunday, Sept. 29, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Piedmont Park.
