HUNTSVILLE – A week after the calendar flipped to the official first day of fall, the Rocket City will celebrate the changing of the seasons with what organizers called “old-fashioned fun’’ at one of the city’s signature settings.
Fall for All, a festival being launched by Huntsville Parks & Recreation, is bringing fun for
everyone Saturday from 1-4 p.m. at Big Spring Park East. The event is free, and a full afternoon of free activities is planned.
“From our annual spring Eggstravaganza to Light Up the Night this summer, our special events have proven to be extremely popular,” Parks and Recreation Director James Gossett said. “We’re excited to bring even more family-friendly fun to the fall season.”
While there is no cost for the event, anyone choosing to pay to park can do so by entering
Garage M from Clinton Ave. Part of Church Street will be blocked off for food trucks.
There will be a petting zoo, midway-style games, kids’ crafts and an inflatable mechanical bull. There also will be pumpkin bowling and live music by 45 Surprise.
At 2:30 p.m., attendees can cheer on their favorite radio and television personalities in the
celebrity hands-free, pie-eating contest. Food trucks will be available throughout the event.
