Children and adults will enjoy a full day of family fun at Dupont Elementary, 134 Hixson Pike, on Oct. 28 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. to raise money for school and classroom improvements.
This fall festival will have food, activities, crafts, and games for all ages, including: inflatables, face painting, kiddie train, and health, wellness, and educational programs sponsored by YMCA YFit Mobile.
"Join the fun at noon for a Dog Costume Contest followed by a Stroller Parade. So decorate that stroller and join us. Kids are encouraged to come in their Halloween costumes. Admission and parking are free and tickets for activities and food are $.50 each," officials said. "Local volunteers include schools and businesses that join our sponsors in promoting education in the Hixson community."
Friends of Hixson President David Queen said, “This festival is a great way for our community to have some fun while supporting our schools. Our organization sees this as another opportunity to promote Hixson as a great place to live, work, and play.”
