If you are looking for something to do this Saturday, Oct. 23, come out to Whiteside Park for the White Hall Police Department’s Fall Festival with plenty of good food available, merchandise to buy, things to keep the kids busy and entertainment. The event will run from 1 to 4 p.m. with entertainment provided by Shannon “Woody” Wood.
“We have about 22 vendors coming to set up with a variety of different merchandise that would make some wonderful Christmas gifts for those who like to get their Christmas shopping done early,” Lindsey Coultas said. “We are very excited to be able to host the event this year since we weren’t able to have it last year due to COVID.”
Coultas is the wife of White Hall Police Chief Luke Coultas. While the men have been out protecting the community, the wives have been busy putting together this event.
The police department will be providing free hot dogs to cook over an open fire and free chili cooked in a large kettle.
For those who aren’t really into hot dogs and chili, there will be plenty of other food items to purchase from food vendors on site.
There will be lots of free things for the kids to do to keep busy while mom and dad shop at the many local vendors including bounce houses, pumpkin painting, a tattoo booth, photo booths, football toss and Tammy the Art Lady is hosting a rock painting.
Cricket Wireless will be bringing games for the kids to play along with the NG FFA, 217 Haunted House and many other things free for the kids to enjoy.
“We are ready to return to normal and this is one of the things our Police Department enjoys putting on for our community,” Police Chief Luke Coultas said. “We enjoy this event as much as the community does and we hope everyone will come out and join us.”
