Fall Festival

Fall Festival

Our last Fall Festival in 2019 was an incredible success, with over 3,000 members of our community in attendance to play games, get their faces painted, find their way through the hay maze, and more. We regretted that the pandemic made it impossible to follow up in 2020, but look forward to our next Fall Festival, tentatively scheduled for October 23, 2021.
