Everything You Need To Know About The Fruita Fall Festival
The Fruita Fall Festival is just right around the corner. It will be sliding into Fruita Sep. 22-24 and it is going to be awesome.
Being a local I know a few of the ins-an-outs of these festivals.
Now the BIG thing for things like this is always parking. So if you want to get a really good spot you better get there early. The best place for parking is the Fruita City Market parking lot. You have to use the spots around the edges so you don’t take up the spots for the store. You can also park along the street next to City Market.
If you are bringing your kids to make this a family event they are in for a really fun time. The vendor booths will be opening at 3 pm so have your kids bring the money that they have saved and let them buy something for themselves.
Now, if you just want some honest fun the carnival will also be starting at 3 and going on until 10 pm! But don’t worry you will also will be able to let your kids groove out because the street dance will be dropping the beat at 7 pm.
Don’t think i forgot about us grown ups. There is plenty for us adults to do. The best thing there is the beer garden. You heard correct I said BEER GARDEN. There will be music all day for 3 days but the best part for the adults is at night.
Go out and have some fun at the Fruita Fall Festival. It’s getting better every year!!
