Fall Fest coming Oct. 19

The Barnwell Development Association and the City of Barnwell Parks and Recreation will host the annual Fall Fest on The Circle on Thursday, Oct. 19 from 5 to 7 p.m.

“There will be lots of fun for everyone,” said City of Barnwell Community Development Director Lynn McEwen. “Gary Brantley will DJ favorite songs, there will be a costume contest for children ages 12 and under, mini-pumpkin painting, games for the kids and more.”

She said Boy Scout Troop 392 will be offering hot dogs for sale as fundraiser. Other organizations will also have booths.

Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to the event. “Adults can too, if they want to!” said McEwen.

“We also invite shoppers to ‘trick-or-treat’ at nearby stores who will be open for extended hours during the Fest,” she said. “Come check out their great deals and support your local businesses.”
