The third annual Fall Into Huntersville Festival will take place on Saturday, October 5th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of Discovery Place Kids.
The festival will highlight area businesses and will have activities for children, live music and a DJ, dance demonstrations and offerings from area food vendors. Additionally, the Huntersville Fire department will be sponsoring a blood drive in honor of their fellow firefighter Jeff Reid, who has been battling leukemia
This year, the festival is jointly sponsored by Huntersville Connection and the What If Everyone non-profit. What If Everyone will be using the event as a kick-off for its "seven days of service" for the region. Many of the area's non-profits will be beneficiaries of the service efforts, including Great Dane Rescue, area schools and food banks. In addition, What If Everyone is working with Huntersville Connection to partner area businesses with non-profits for greater community exposure.
Huntersville Connection, a networking and partnership organization for local business owners, first organized the event in 2011 to showcase small businesses. Since that time, Huntersville Connection has grown to over 350 participants.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY: Prior to and during the event, there will be road closures on Gilead from NC-115 to Maxwell and on NC-115 from Gilead to Greenway. Due to expected high foot traffic, please expect traffic delays in that area.
