PRLog - Sep. 2, 2014 - DULUTH, Ga. -- Thousands are expected to pour into the streets as one of the top festivals in the southeast brings excitement, entertainment and tradition.
The 32nd Annual Duluth Fall Festival is a free family friendly event and it will kick off with a carnival for kids to enjoy. The festival also includes a parade, arts and crafts, food booths, entertainment venues, a 5-K road race, and a “Man’s Corner.”
“Residents are excited about this event. They have it marked on their calendar, friends are coming in from out of town and everyone is really happy about it” said Fall Festival Committee Member Kay Montgomery.
The purpose of the festival is to promote the general welfare and beautification of downtown Duluth while providing wholesome entertainment for families across Metro Atlanta. The Festival has spearheaded numerous special projects, including purchasing and development of Taylor Park (including the arched entryway), building the Duluth Festival Center, paving and landscaping the Festival Center Courtyard, and many more.
“A lot of money is raised because of the Fall Festival and this money is put back into the community. Not only is it a lot of fun to put on for people to enjoy, but the end result pays back into the City of Duluth” said Montgomery.
The festival kicks off Thursday, September 25th and last until September 28th. Shuttle buses are available on Saturday and Sunday and will run every 15 minutes. Media interested in covering this event, please contact Alisa Williams.
