The 25th Annual Frayser Fall Festival is Saturday

Posted by Holly Whitfield | October 3rd 2013 2202 0

The Frayser Fall Festival celebrates 25 years of fun, food, and neighborliness this Saturday. I talked to Rebecca Murray, the President of the Frayser Community Association, who gave me a long list of Festival activities. Here are a few of the highlights.

Stuff for Kids. Most nearby schools will have booths, there will be face painting, kiddie rides, and a drawing for a couple of new, shiny kid bikes. 

Entertainment. The Frayser Judo Club (the oldest active club in the state) will give demonstrations, there will be line dancing lessons, and local music groups and choirs will perform.

Food. Food trucks Kelvin's Hot Wings and Town Fryer (turkey legs, funnel cakes) will be there, among others. Students at New Hope Christian Academy will sell candy apples. The Green Machine mobile farmer's market will be there with fresh fruit and veggies. 

Information. Rebecca explained that the theme of this year's event is "Moving Frayser Forward" so anything you want to know about what people are doing to improve this community, you'll be able to find out at the Festival. 

The Festival is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and is open to all ages. The Ed Rice Community Center is ADA accessible.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
