Long Beach Fall Festival 2018
It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end and that the Fall season is on the way! The City of Long Beach is busy making preparations for its 22nd Annual Fall Festival. The two day outdoor festival will take place on Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm in Kennedy Plaza located on Park Avenue between National Boulevard and Centre Street.
All are invited to attend this family friendly Long Beach tradition and to stroll through Kennedy Plaza taking in the sights, sounds and smells of autumn. The event offers something for everyone!
The weekend’s centerpiece is the pumpkin patch filled with thousands of pumpkins waiting to be picked! A Pumpkin Bounce House, a Petting Zoo, the Haunted House, Carousel, Hay Wagon, and Fire Engine rides are just some of the fun-filled kids activities returning this year. The children’s activity tent, sponsored by the Girl Scouts, will also return featuring fall related craft projects. Due to the popular demand we will also bring back the giant corn maze!
There is plenty for adults too… vendors will offer fresh produce, breads and pies; and craft vendors will line the plaza. Those over 21 are invited to visit the Food & Wine Tent for wine tastings presented by Beach Liquors. Modestly priced samplings from local restaurants will take place in the Food & Wine Tent. An array of food vendors will also be on hand offering international fare along the plaza.
Live music and children’s entertainment will take place at National Boulevard on the bandwagon.
At Noon on Saturday, children in costumes will parade from the Recreation Center to Kennedy Plaza. Awards for best costumes and other categories will be given and each child in costume will receive special treats.
