SEMINOLE – The Kiwanis Club of Seminole will host its 20th Annual Fall Festival Days and Carnival Saturday, Oct. 9, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 10, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Seminole Vocational Education Center.
A large part of the proceeds will help support the Seminole High School Marching Band's trip to the 2005 Rose Bowl Parade.
Opportunities are still available for businesses and craftsmen to participate.
The event will be in October this year, which will enable the Kiwanis Club to include a Halloween theme to its community-oriented weekend.
Activities will include a haunted house, costume contests, pumpkin painting and trick-or-treating, as well as the usual large arts and crafts show, and an antique, classic rod car show.
Live entertainment will fill the main stage both days, as a Business Showcase Tent offers ideas from a variety of local businesses. A larger carnival area with new attractions will be offered, and hayrides and ponyrides will keep everyone busy.
On Saturday at 1 p.m., the annual Barnyard Style Auction will begin, with more than 150 items, including weekends on the beach, trips to Disney, Busch Gardens, Silver Springs and many more Florida attractions, dozens of restaurant gift certificates, bicycles and more.
There will be great food and an old-fashioned barbecue with all the fixings, funnel cakes, Rita’s Italian Ice and more.
Admission is free and ample parking will be available. The Seminole Vocational Education Center is at 12611 86th Ave. N.
Space is available in the business tent, car show and craft area. Call Bill Miller at 393-3481 daytime or 394-CLUB (2582) evenings.
