The Knox County Parks and Recreation Department will host its first-ever Fall Festival this Sunday, Nov. 14, at Tommy Schumpert Park, 6400 Fountain City Road.


The event, which is free and open to the public, kicks off at 1 p.m. and wraps up at 4 p.m.


Visitors can enjoy hayrides and a chance to win prizes from outdoor games like cornhole, balloon pop, fishbowl toss, and ring toss. Additionally, B97.5 will broadcast live from the park, the Knox County Public Library will host crafts and story time, and the disc golf course will be open to enjoy.


“Our recreation department has worked hard to really emphasize fun and community connectivity,” Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs said. “This is just another great event our team has put together for the public.”


The county plans to turn the Fall Festival into an annual event.


Just last month, Parks and Recreation held its first-ever Trunk-or-Treat event at John Tarleton Park, which officials also plan to do yearly.


Despite the rainy weather, roughly 1,000 people attended the fun-filled Halloween event.
