Want to play in the leaves? Get to Urbana, but be quick

From Robin Kearton, artistic director of Community Center for the Arts:

Crane Alley, on the north side of Main Street in downtown Urbana, just east of the Cinema Gallery, 120 W. Main, is hosting the city's largest collection of intentionally placed leaves. This display is at your disposal for dragging feet, breathing fabulous fall smells and generally having fun.

Champaign artist Lori Caterini has collected more than 250 bags of leaves and placed them in the alley for your enjoyment.

Caterini started spreading the leaves at 6 this morning and has to start cleaning them up at 6 this evening.

People are invited to stop by on their lunch hours or bring their kids after school.
