River Legacy Foundation is partnering with the City of Arlington's Parks and Recreation Department to offer the River Legacy Foundation Fall Festival, Oct. 12 & 13. This NEW event combines the best of River Legacy's signature fundraising event, After Dark in the Park, with the city's annual Eco-Fest for a unique family fall festival focusing on nature and conservation.

Families will enjoy some of their favorite activities from both events, such as animal explorations, face painting, storytelling, hayrides and MORE with a mix of NEW games, demonstrations, and vendors for a one-of-a-kind fall festival.

The event offers two days of all-day fun from 11 am to 9 pm, Oct. 12 & Oct. 13 at River Legacy Park and River Legacy Living Science Center. Admission to River Legacy's Fall Festival will be $8 for all ages 3 and up, but more than 30 FREE activities in River Legacy Park and the Science Center will be included with admission. Food, merchandise and some activities will require coupons. Special discount ticket packages will go on sale in September.

This new fall festival format will cater to a wider audience of all ages by offering a variety of day and evening activities and entertainment. Groups, organizations and businesses with environmental initiatives will also be recognized at the festival this year.

Interested sponsors, vendors and participants should contact Shannon Porter, River Legacy Event/Exhibit Manager, for more information at 817.860.6752, ext. 119 or via e-mail at shannon@riverlegacy.org.
