Orange you glad autumn is in the air? That means it’s time to turn over a new leaf at Buncombe County’s Falloween. The popular Lake Julian Park event is free and features a variety of classic fall activities for the whole family. From recreation to entertainment to the scarecrow contest, there’s bound to be something you’ll like a latte (pumpkin spice optional).
Hosted by Buncombe County’s award-winning Recreation Services, this event will feature arts and crafts, food, music, games, and Autumnal themes. Vendors will be selling locally made arts and crafts, there will be food and beverage trucks, and folk band 81 drifters will keep you tapping your toes. Activities will include a pumpkin patch with a painting station, light displays, photo ops, outdoor arcade games, and more. And of course, scarecrow contest entries will be on display, and visitors may vote on which is their favorite with the winner being announced during the festival.
Falloween is free to enter, but some activities have nominal fees. The pumpkin patch is $5 per pumpkin and includes the option to paint your pumpkin. Various arts and crafts vendors and food trucks will also have items available for purchase, and we recommend you bring cash.
When: Saturday, Oct. 22 from 3-7 p.m.
Where: Lake Julian Park
