Each year around this time, Pike County, Illinois gets ready for one of the biggest events they have for the year.

The Pike County Color Drive is a county-wide event. From East Hannibal, Illinois to Florence, Illinois. From Pearl, Illinois to Fishook, Illinois, people come to Pike County to hopefully see the fall colors, taste some great food and buy some handmade blankets and nik naks.

The Pike County courthouse in Pittsfield has a huge lawn with many vendors for you the browse through. It is a two-day event, October 20th and 21st.
