Freaky Friday Oct. 26, FPS Fall Fest Oct. 27

The Farragut community will have a full weekend of activities and pre-Halloween events at month’s end, most notably Freaky Friday Fright Night Oct. 26, and Farragut Primary School’s annual Fall Festival Saturday, Oct. 27.

It is the 22nd annual Freaky Friday Fright Night, an event sponsored by Town of Farragut, which is held from 5 to 7 p.m. at Mayor Bob Leonard Park along Watt Road. It is open to trick-or-treaters ages 12 and younger, who can beg for candy along the park’s walking trail, where local businesses and other members of the community will be handing out treats, overseeing games and offering other Halloween-themed activities.

The event is free, but guests are encouraged to bring items to benefit the local Ronald McDonald House, such as paper towels, gift cards, postage stamps, K-cups, hand soap and individually wrapped snacks. Cash donations also will be accepted.

FPS’s Fall Festival is hosted by the school’s Parent Teacher Association and will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the school’s grounds along North Campbell Station Road. Guests can expect games, food, crafts and activities for all ages during this fundraiser, which last year raised more than $30,000 despite being moved indoors due to heavy rainfall.
