The Rocky Mount Parks and Recreation Department is set to host a Community Fall Festival.

The public event is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 19 on the baseball field behind the Booker T. Washington Community Center at 727 Pennsylvania Ave.

Admission is free. Food, games, prizes, inflatables, a mini hay ride, step team performances and a live DJ are planned, said Heather White, the center's recreation program supervisor.

“The Community Fall Festival is a way to celebrate the fall season,” White said. “The festival is also an event which allows the Parks and Recreation Department to thank Rocky Mount residents for their support of our community and recreation centers, as well as our many programs.”

The Community Fall Festival is open to all ages. For more information call 252-467-4925.
