Celebrate all things autumnal during a festival packed with pumpkins, live music and craft beers at Virdian on Saturday, Oct. 15. Fall Fest takes place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Overlook Park, 1210 Viridian Park Lane. It is free and open to the public.
“Fall Fest will be an opportunity for Arlington residents to enjoy everything that makes autumn great — cooler weather, fall leaves and great food,” said Robert Kembel, general manager. “They also will get a taste of Viridian’s unique lifestyle.”
The event gets underway with a farmers market, giant games of Jenga and Connect Four, harvest-themed activities and live guitar music from Chris Acosta.
Beginning at noon, revelers also will be treated to a petting zoo and music by Tony Rey and Joshua Irwin. Food trucks, including Pokey O’s and Not Just Q, will have food available for purchase.
A highlight of the celebration will be a craft beer tasting featuring ales, stouts and lagers brewed up by Arlington’s own Legal Draft Beer Company. Also on tap will be home brewers New Main Brewing and Dirty Job Brewing — both in the process of getting their first tap rooms up and running.
The Trinity High School Girls Awareness Program (GAP) will be on hand helping families adopt “fur-ever” friends through the Euless Animal Shelter. A pumpkin patch will benefit the Viridian Dads Advocating Development (DAD) Club. Members strive to be active role models and care givers for elementary-aged school children.
