After cancellations the past two Memorial Days due to Covid-19, the Round Hill Hometown Festival returns on Saturday, Oct. 9, as the Round Hill “FestiFall.”
Taking Covid precautions into account, the FestiFall will feature family-friendly activity stations spread around Town.
“The FestiFall is a chance for us to come together as a community to meet our neighbors old and new and to celebrate our small town,” said Mayor Scott Ramsey. “All events will be outside and socially-distanced in order to gather responsibly.”
The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the traditional 5k race through town, starting and ending at Round Hill Elementary School, followed by a half-mile kids’ fun run, also at the school. Registration is online at www.hometownfestival.org.
Plans are still being finalized for the rest of the day, but look for music, food, lawn games and other socially-distanced activities to be held at the Round Hill Town Park, Round Hill Baptist Church and the Round Hill United Methodist Church.
Possible activities include face painting, sidewalk chalk art and paint-your-own pottery from the Round Hill Arts Center, a town-wide scavenger hunt, an antique car show, bake sale, petting zoo and more.
Tammy’s Diner will be serving lunch hot off the grill and the Round Hill Grocery will offer wrapped sandwiches and samples of exotic meats; other food items will be available for purchase as well.
Activities will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather and Covid conditions permitting.
