Fall Festival Oct. 1-6

It is my favorite time of year as college and professional football are back in full swing and summer temperatures are subdued by the pleasantness of autumn. I always look forward to spending time outdoors with my family during the fall as it is truly the most beautiful season. Indiana embraces the fall season by celebrating our state’s rich history with Oktoberfests, Pioneer Days and countless other festivals. That being said, the biggest festival of the year is right around the corner. 

The Fall Festival held by the West Side Nut Club in Evansville will run next week from Oct. 1-6. Every year, thousands of Hoosiers and their families come to the festival to enjoy local entertainment and attractions. This year will not be any different.

Headlining the music scene of the festival will be: 7 Bridges: The Ultimate Eagles Experience, Grandview Junction, Terry Lee and the Rockaboogie Band, The Jimmies, The Dominoes, Joe Greulich and Tim Smith and much, much more!

There will be over a 130 food booths along West Franklin Street stretching from Wabash Avenue to St. Joe Avenue. You will be able to enjoy typical fair food delicacies such as BBQ sandwiches, tenderloins, hot dogs, funnel cakes and even some healthier options like salad wraps and soups. However, the more daring souls might want to try a brain sandwich, some chocolate covered crickets or even a deep-fried moon pie.

There will be tons of fun, food and entertainment to enjoy, so do not delay and get a pre-sale armband voucher at Old National Bank for a discounted price of $16. At the door, admission is $18.

If you are looking to avoid the big crowds, the West Side Nut Club will be hosting Family Day on Sunday September 30. This is a great day for small children to come and enjoy Kiddie rides from 1:00 pm-7:00 pm. The West Side Nut Club will be serving food and drinks at the intersection of Franklin and 10th Avenue, in addition to a limited number of food booths on Acorn Plaza. Tickets will be $1.25 each.

The Fall Festival will be a wonderful time for friends and family to get together and enjoy an evening out on the town. If you would like more information about the festival or a detailed schedule for each day, please visit www.nutclub.org. I am looking forward to being at the festival again this year, and I hope to see a lot of familiar faces!
