Fall is in the air and the Arlington Community Church is preparing for its annual fall festival.
This is the sixth year for the event, which will take place on Oct. 6 in and around the Arlington city park.
Though it is a fundraiser for the church, chairwoman Kim Dobson said it is a community event.
“It brings our whole entire community together and surrounding communities,” Dobson said. “We have people from all over — Omaha, Lincoln, Blair — that come in and enjoy the day. It’s family friendly. It’s not costly.
“People can just come and enjoy the day at very little cost.”
Ten percent of funds raised are donated to the community fund.
The festival begins with a worship service at 10 a.m. Other events include:
11 a.m. to 3 p.m. — craft show
Noon to 3 p.m. — children’s games
Noon to 4 p.m. — car show
The car show is a big draw, Dobson said. In the past, more than 200 cars have been on display. The cars will line up from Fifth to Third streets and along Elm Street around the park.
The awards, including Best of Show and Pastor’s Choice, will be given at 4 p.m.
Throughout the day, festival-goers can enjoy music performed by high school students and community members.
Concessions and a pie garden with homemade pies will also be available.
