Fall Crawl Cankerworm Festival
Fall Crawl 2012 - Saturday, October 27th — Midwood Park
Click here for Volunteer Opportunities.
Our historic center city neighborhood is gearing up for its Seventh annual fall festival to celebrate Halloween for kids of all ages -- and to continue the neighborhood’s successful fight against the cankerworm infestation of our splendid tree canopy.
Fall Crawl, to be held on Saturday, October 27, begins with a costume parade for the neighborhood’s littlest goblins and ghouls followed by trunk-or-treating at Kilgo Church, sale of discounted tree banding supplies for neighborhood residents, music and food… and lots of other activities in Midwood Park.
All activities in Midwood Park throughout the day are free and open to the public – especially a stellar line-up of local musicians in the Midwood Park Amphitheatre from 1 pm until 6:30 pm, including the ever popular Plaza Midwood Family Band – back again by popular demand. Other autumn fun includes local artists and vendors, lots for the kids to do including pumpkin painting, scarecrow stuffing, inflatable obstacle course, bounce house for the children, and food and beverages for sale in the park.
