Bracelets are on sale now for Wellington’s Annual Fall Festival! This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 19th, from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., at Village Park (11700 Pierson Road). Extended hours provide families with younger children an opportunity to enjoy plenty of fun and activities earlier in the day, while still getting their little ghouls and goblins home in time for bed.
Visit the Haunted Hallways (opening at 5:00 p.m.), if you dare, or enjoy one of the many other event attractions including a petting zoo, pony rides, a pie-eating contest, hayrides, trick-or-treating, face painting, bounce houses, laser tag, vendors, and more! Approximately 20 food trucks will also be on-site with sweet and savory food and beverage items for purchase.
Attendees can also enjoy live performances on the sound stage, or participate in costume contests for prizes, with 1st through 3rd place awards for each of the following age groups: under 3; ages 4 to 6; ages 7 to 10; ages 11 to 14; and 15 and older. Costume contests will be held at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Please note that some attraction start and end times may vary from the event time frame. Visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/FallFestival for more information.
