Falloween Festival returns to Walkerton

Posted:

They are doing it big in Walkerton, Indiana.  The annual Falloween Festival has returned to John Glenn High School.  It's like a mini-county fair with rides, games and fair food.

The event was started five years ago as a way to raise money for scholarships.  Since 2009 over $70,000 has been raised.

Some of the highlights of the event are a parade on Friday which features the John Glenn High School marching band.

Saturday features a 5k run in the morning at 9:00am.  Also on Saturday one of the staples of the event returns: homemade apple butter and dumplings.

"That is becoming a tradition here on Falloween, homemade, everything is homemade, we do it every year, you better get here soon and get that because its worth it," says Ray Grossman the co-chair of Falloween.

The John Glenn High School show choir will perform on Sunday at 1:00pm.  It all kicks off Friday at 4:00pm with the Midway and 15 different rides.

Admission to the event is free.
