Visit Farmer Fred’s Harvest Fall Carnival

Fall Carnival

You’re always on the lookout for more family-friendly activities, especially when the weather starts to cool down. One great option is to go to Farmer Fred’s Harvest Fall Carnival. This event has been pretty popular in years past, and now, it’s back again. It’s an opportunity to dress up in your favorite costume and come on out to enjoy carnival games, candy, prizes, and even more fun.

The fall carnival will be held at the San Marcos Rec Hall at City Park on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., right before Halloween. It’s the perfect alternative or complement to trick-or-treating. Get the scoop on what’s going to be happening when you attend this fun family carnival.

Costume Contest

Perhaps the most exciting part of the whole event, the costume contest is going to be a blast. This is a special contest, as it considers contestants from different age groups. Therefore, if you have a toddler and an elementary schooler, they will be competing against kids in the same age range. That makes things even more fun because there will be more winners. So, dress up in your most creative costume and try to win the contest. Even if you don’t take home the first prize, you’ll still be proud of all the effort you put into your or your child’s look.

Carnival Games

What’s the one thing you’d most expect from a fall celebration? Carnival games, of course! There are going to be lots of them, and your kids will love taking part in the fun. They’ll see games they’ve never played before, so it gives them the opportunity to try something new. Plus, you’ll have an amazing time watching them have fun with all the other kids.
