Family fun at Warrenville Fall Fest
Warrenville Park District's annual Fall Fest will celebrate autumn with activities for residents of all ages.
The fest is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27, at the Recreation Center, 3S260 Warren Ave.
The festival opens with a costume parade for little ghosts and goblins around the Recreation Center track overlooking the gym. Lineup begins at 5:45 p.m. and the parade begins promptly at 6 p.m. A costume contest will be judged right after the parade and winners in different age levels will receive prizes.
Participants can purchase $5 wristbands, good for unlimited play in all games and inflatable areas, crafts, storytelling, photo booth, balloon twister and caricaturist.
Storytelling with Chris Fascione will run throughout the evening.
Everyone will be a winner with loads of candy and prizes at the carnival games. The entertainment and food tent is always a big hit with music by Judy Bridges and the Happy Wanderers.
NorthStar Credit Union will provide the event's sweet spot with free Taffy Apples. New this year will be the Warrenville Bake-Off competition.
"Throughout the event, kids will enjoy the costume parade, carnival games, the Photo Booth, a storyteller and more. The food and entertainment tent provides great music while you enjoy freshly grilled food," said Sheri Potter, Warrenville Park District fitness/recreation coordinator.
