The Town of Fulton will have a new festival this fall if all goes as planned. The Fulton Town Council has approved the request of Shana Brader of Sun Kissed Graphics and Seaworthy Marine to hold a Fall Festival from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 on Fulton Beach Road, between Cactus and Palmetto streets.
The Festival will include a kids’ parade, which will begin in the Boiling Pot parking lot, a costume contest, food trucks, live music, and a carved and painted pumpkin contest.
Plans are still in progress, but the festival could include a pumpkin patch and a photo booth, as well.
Brader asked the council to support the festival by serving as judges for contests, providing portable toilets, and closing Fulton Beach Road between Cactus and Palmetto streets.
Alderman Bob Loflin asked if businesses along that route have been contacted.
Brader said all but two have been contacted.
“We want the streets opened back up at 5 p.m.,” she said.
Alderwoman Beverly Garis asked about the need for extra law enforcement.
Fulton Police Chief Rick McLester said, “I’ll be there. We can do it. Let’s try it out.”
Additional details about the festival will be made available in the near future.
