West Side Gearing Up for Fall Festival
Family Day is Sunday, full start is Monday
The 101st Nut Club Fall Festival gets underway with Family Day Sunday afternoon, before starting in earnest on Monday. WNIN’s John Gibson has a preview:
More than 130 not-for-profit food booths will be lined up along W. Franklin St., offering everything from pronto pups, sausage sliders, and chicken and dumplings to elephant ears, funnel cakes, and deep-fried Snickers.
If you look hard enough, you can also find some healthier options.
The festival is a major fundraiser for the not-for-profit groups.
The Nut Club also donates festival proceeds to schools, athletic programs, and other non-profits.
Other festival attractions include carnival rides, games, talent contests, parades, and a very popular half-pot drawing.
