Fall Fest Fun!
October 4, 2018
BUCKHANNON, WV: The City would like to send a big “Thank You!” to everyone who participated in this year’s Fall Fest! The weather was beautiful and we had so much fun listening to live music, taking wagon rides, and visiting the car and pet shows. We also raised additional funding for the continued renovation of our community theatre–$1,000 from the Battle of the Bands and $800 from the wagon rides.
That said, we recognize that there was an issue with the carnival and our advertised schedule, which listed the rides opening at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. That is the schedule we were given by Gambill Amusements and we are not sure why they did not open until 6:00 that evening. We are working to ensure this does not happen again, and apologize for any inconvenience this caused. Our own kids were disappointed as well, we can assure you. Overall, though, we were pleased with the turnout and look forward to working with you and all our community partners again in 2019! Please let us know what you enjoyed the most and what we should definitely bring back for next year! In the meantime, enjoy the photos and video of this year’s event.
