First annual Fall Fest entertainment lineup announced
INDIANAPOLIS - Gary Councilman Dwight A. Williams, County Councilman Charlie Brown, Sheriff Oscar Martinez, State Rep. Vernon G. Smith (D-Gary), Calumet Township Trustee Kimberly Robinson and County Assessor LaTonya Spearman will join forces to sponsor the first annual Fall Fest. The event will be held at the Glen Theatre (20 W. Ridge Road) on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 1-7 p.m. (CT).
A disc jockey will provide music for dancing from 1 p.m. to dusk. There will be vendors, free school supplies, free food and continuous live entertainment. From 4-7 p.m., there will be a Mini Black Film Festival inside the theater.
The sponsors are seeking artists, painters and sculptors to display their work. They are also seeking vendors. The fee for a vendor space is $35.
“This is a great opportunity for our Gary neighbors to come out and enjoy each other’s company as we move into a new season,” Smith said. “The entertainment we have lined up is sure to impress and I am pleased to announce that we will be giving back to those in need by holding a shoe drive at the same time.”
Guests are urged to bring in new and gently used shoes for youth and adults, both male and female. These shoes will be sent to developing countries.
At 5 p.m. there will be a ceremony honoring area first responders.
