Fall Festival

Police: visibility key to Fall Fest security

Oct 4, 2017

Evansville Police are promoting safety at the Fall Festival, while also urging festival-goers to have a good time. 

EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum tells WNIN the security plan at the West Side Nut Club event hasn’t changed since the deadly shooing at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas.

But he says these days, security at the festival includes officers on rooftops…

("Just so they have an overview of the crowd. That helps if we're trying to locate anybody for any reason, which includes persons who are causing problems or a missing kid.")

Fall Festival underway on Franklin St.

If it can be deep fried and put on a stick, you can probably find it on West Franklin Street in Evansville.

The West Side Nut Club is celebrating its 94th Fall Festival with more than 125 food booths, carnival rides and games, parades, live music, and talent shows.

The food varies from traditional festival fare like pronto pups, brain sandwiches, and caramel apples to more unusual “delicacies” like deep fried Oreos, deep fried Kool-Aid balls, and even deep fried peanut butter and jelly.
