The fun will kick off on Tuesday, October 24th with the Fall Festival and Children’s Carnival. This event will be held for children 12 and younger at the Opelika SportsPlex from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Admission to the Fall Festival is free and will include entertainment, visits with local mascots and fellowship with others in the community. There will be inflatables, games, activities and a hayride that children can participate in through the purchase of tickets or an all-access wristband. Tickets are 25 cents each, and to do every activity one time it would cost around $12. Alternatively, an all-access wristband costs $10, and it allows children to do every activity as many times as they would like to. “Many people like to play games multiple times or take a couple of rides on the hayride so we created a wristband that would take the guess work out of purchasing tickets,” said Laura Leigh Chesser, public relations coordinator. “It’s perfect for parents who struggle trying to figure out how many tickets their children will need.”
