Fall Fun Day Recap

Friday November 1, 2013

Sunny weather and great community turn out made the October 26th Fall Fun Day a success. Photos are posted in flikr album here.

Scary giant spiders, flying bats, pumpkins, hay & corn stalks decorated the Lift Off sculpture at 5th/K St and made for a perfect photo-op.

Volunteers (including Safeway manager James, shown here) helped plant 1,700 flower bulbs and 50+ children participated in the Mini Monster Kid Parade and/or enjoyed the pumpkin painting craft table, face painting, and hula hooping. Vida Fitness taught a free Zombie Zumba class, Ace Hardware gave away popcorn, and Busboys & Poets artists painted pumpkins and poured free apple cider.

About 20 creatively dressed dogs paraded behind a banjo player to the 5th/K St plaza. Wagtime and Anytime K9 judged costumes and gave away prizes. Gospel Rescue Ministry CFO Sally Cox brought her dog, Diego, dressed in an MVT mascot costume. We also had dogs dressed as bumblebees, pirates, crayola crayons, Rufferee (referee dog), and the winner–Grandma Dog.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners: Busboys & Poets, Ace Hardware, Taylor Gourmet, Vida Fitness, City Vista REA, Kids in the Triangle, Wagtime and AnythingTime K9. The CID donated decorations to the Golden Rule Plaza senior apartments after the event.
