A new festival from Huntsville Parks & Recreation will celebrate all things fall with old-fashioned fun for everyone.

The community is invited to Fall for All at Big Spring Park East on Saturday, Oct. 7, from 1-4 p.m. A full afternoon of free activities is planned.

Enjoy a petting zoo, midway-style games and kids’ crafts. Try out the inflatable mechanical bull, go pumpkin bowling or just relax and listen to live music by 45 Surprise.

At 2:30 p.m., cheer on your favorite radio and television personalities in the celebrity pie-eating contest. The hands-free competition will end with sweet victory for one contestant and just desserts for the runners-up. For everyone else, food trucks will be available throughout the event.

“From our annual spring Eggstravaganza to Light Up the Night this summer, our special events have proven to be extremely popular,” said Parks & Recreation Director James Gossett. “We’re excited to bring even more family-friendly fun to the fall season.”

There is no cost to attend Fall for All. However, those who choose to park in Garage M will pay event parking rates. Please enter the garage from Clinton Avenue, as part of Church Street will be blocked off for food trucks.
