The 9th annual Fall Festival at Fieldhome is returning on Saturday, Sept. 21 with entertainment for everyone – from a petting zoo, to face painting, pumpkin decorating, games, prizes and more.
The Fall Festival was founded as a way to give back to the community, said Patti Horvath, Director of Corporate Compliance and Community Outreach at Fieldhome. Attendees are asked to bring canned and dried foods, which will benefit Yorktown Community Help.
"It is a fun-filled day that is enjoyed by our residents and their families as well as everyone in the community," she said.
Some of the events planned include arts and crafts, a car show, pumpkin patch, homemade bake sale, fall plants sale, food and live entertainment, as well as a Kid’s Zone.
"The Kids' Zone is always a big hit with the petting zoo, face and pumpkin painting, bouncy houses and games and prizes," Horvath said. "The live entertainment throughout the day is also a great draw."
THe Bob Martinson Band is returning to provide musical entertainment this year, as well as John Fogarty and the Yorktown Teen Center, who will be playing in the Kids' Zone. Rick Saricka will be playing 50s music at the Car Show.
Bertoline & Sons has donated money trees which will be raffled off at the end of the day, Horvath said. There are more than 70 raffle baskets which have been generously donated by many local businesses.
The Seabury at Fieldhome is located on the border of Yorktown and Cortlandt Manor at 2276 Catherine Street. The events are being held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission and parking are free.
