Always held on the 3rd Saturday in October, this year’s annual Fall Festival is returning to the tradition of having a different theme each year. This year’s theme is going to be “It’s a Pirate’s Life for Me” featuring all things Pirate, and promises to be loads of fun!
And this year’s fun begins with our Annual parade down Main Street. Replete with lots of floats decked out in a “Pirates of the Caribbean” flair, parade entries will compete for a 1st Place gift card for $125.00! A costume contest will also be sponsored at the festival by Regions Bank. Everyone is encouraged to dress up in the Pirate theme, so pull out your old Pirate outfits from past costume parties, throw on those Mardi Gras beads and eye patches, and drop by the Regions Bank booth space at the entrance of the festival gates, and register to win!
As always, there will be lots of exciting events during the day, including the Suncoast CreditUnion Greased Pig Contest at 2:30 pm! The Greased Pig Contest will be held once again in the retention area behind the ball park, next to the skate park. Suncoast Credit Union will be offering wristband pre-sales at their office on Hwy 48 beginning September 1st through October 18th.
Scattered throughout the park, there are fun activities for kids of all ages, including log-sawing competitions, pony rides, rock wall climbing, mechanical bull rides, Kiddy Land activities for the little ones, and many other attractions!
And of course, there is always a huge assortment of food vendors.
And to close out the festival, Mr. Fred Partin's Dragonworks will thrill us with a fantastic fireworks display at 8:30 pm in the field behind the ball park! It's always the perfect end to an absolutely perfect day! So dust off yer dancin' shoes, pull out yer Pirate costumes and be sure to join us again this year! Aaarrrrg, Matey! See you there!
