In 2011, a zip line stretched from one end of the event to the other over the crowd. Folks whizzing by overhead made for a fun addition to the event.

Amazingly, FallFest always seems to land on one of the best days of the year (knocking on wood that our luck continues). These bloody mary’s made the hot Indian summer day at 2013’s event that much better.

We love a good sponsor activation! Lucky’s set-up was flawless, perfectly capturing the essence of the event.

The colors! FallFest is during our favorite time of year and vibrant colors of seasonal food and drink make it that much more festive.
