Fall Festival offers candy, games, music


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Children will be able to enjoy a safe and fun event on Halloween as the city of Roswell and local business partners put on the second annual Fall Festival that will feature trunk-or-treat (trick-or-treating in a designated location, rather than a neighborhood), carnival games, bouncy houses and music.

The Fall Festival will take place Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Russ DeKay Soccer Complex, at 1500 North Grand Avenue across from the Wool Bowl. Parking for the Fall Festival is available in the Wool Bowl parking lot across Grand Avenue from the soccer complex. The section of Grand Avenue adjacent to the soccer complex will be closed to vehicle traffic during the event.

Kids of all ages will be able to enjoy fun activities that include carnival games and inflatable jumpers. The Roswell Public Library is offering a “Teal Pumpkin” booth that will offer items suitable for those who must avoid foods containing some common allergens. The Teal Pumpkin initiative is gaining popularity worldwide.

Those attending the event are welcome to dress up in costumes if they like. However, no guns of any type — including fake, toy, water or any other gun-like items — are allowed.

Law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical personnel will have candy at the ready for trunk-or-treat activities that will include a chance for children and adults to visit with local first-responders and get a look at vehicles from the Roswell Police Department, Roswell Fire Department, Chaves County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies.
