Posted on October 21, 2016 at 8:28 AM by Communications Department

Councilwoman Saundra Cherry invites Newport News residents to join her for the 2016 Community Fall Fest. The event will be held at the James A. Fields House located at 617 - 27th Street on Saturday, October 29, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM pumpkins_SC

Sponsored in partnership with the James A. Fields House and the Downtown Newport News Merchants and Neighborhood Association, the free event promises a fun-filled fall day that will include a cakewalk, music, and other carnival-type games. Attendees between the ages of 2 and 17 are welcome to participate in a free miniature pumpkin give-away while the supply lasts. Children may come dressed in costumes and be ready to have a great time, but they must be accompanied by an adult.

Candy donations are being accepted until Thursday, October 27. Drop off or pick up by appointment can be arranged by calling 757-532-7993.

Vendors and volunteers are still needed to help at the event. Vendors may submit applications until October 26. Applications are available at Downtown Newport News Merchants and Neighbors, Inc. located at 617-27th Street, Lower Level, in Newport News, by emailing or calling 757-813-6014.
