Fall on the Mall is fast approaching!
HUNTSVILLE — Make plans to join the Scott County Chamber of Commerce on the historic Huntsville Mall on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 for the 5th annual Fall on the Mall festival.
After being canceled in 2020 due to Covid-19 concerns, Fall on the Mall will be bigger and better than ever in 2021, jam-packed with fun activities for kids and their families.
“The whole purpose of Fall on the Mall is to provide a fun day for our community’s kids,” said Stacey Swann, executive director of the Scott County Chamber of Commerce. “The kids are what this day is all about.”
Once again in 2021, Fall on the Mall will be condensed into an afternoon and evening event, beginning with the annual costume contest, sponsored by Big South Fork Medical Center, at 3 p.m. There will be cash prizes awarded in various age groups, and family costumes are also welcome, with a gift card and trophy awarded to the best-dressed family.
The costume contest will take place at the gazebo in the center of the mall. Pre-registration is not necessary.
At 5 p.m., the trunk-or-treat will begin in the parking lot of the Department of Children’s Services offices on the east side of the mall. All local businesses are welcome and encouraged to participate. A trophy will be awarded to the best-decorated trunk. Call (423) 663-6900 if your business would like to participate.
Finally, a free movie under the stars will be shown at 7 p.m. Head over to the gazebo and sit on the provided hay bales, or bring a blanket or chair, for The Goonies, a Hollywood classic beloved by people of all ages.
There will be food vendors set up on the mall throughout the afternoon, and many of Scott County’s non-profits and small businesses will offer games and activities for kids. If you would like to participate, call (423) 663-6900.
There will also be bounce houses, and the Little Ponderosa petting zoo will be on-hand. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and National Wild Turkey Federation will also be set up with free activities.
In the event of inclement weather, Fall on the Mall will be pushed back to Saturday, Oct. 30.
