Dowdy Park will be the scene for this year’s Fall Festival for Leroy Massey, Menlo and Lyerly Elementary Schools. The schools are combining their fall festivals and will be working with Summerville Main Street to host the event in the park in October.
Susan Locklear, Summerville Main Street Director, says that she has been working with teachers and the PTO’s from each of the schools to host the event. In the past, each school has had their own festival and the City of Summerville has hosted a separate fall festival at the park.
Locklear says that this year’s event will be a “true community fall festival” with all of the elementary schools in the county’s school system participating. Locklear said, “The schools are all coming together to put on this one big event…..In the past we’ve called it community fall festival and tried to put it on ourselves. This year it’s going to be truly invested by the community.”
The Community Fall Festival will take place on the last Saturday of the month, October 26th.
