Fall is a time when friends get together and fun memories are made. For us here in Austin, it means the temperatures finally dip below 90 degrees and it’s time to go outside!
This year’s Fall Fest was a huge success, with dozens of matches coming out to enjoy the festivities and the cooler temperatures. The day started with rain, but a little downpour won’t stop costumed kids from going out for candy-filled goodie bags!
Littles were skipping up the driveway to the BBBS office – some of them dancing to the outdoor music – all of them eagerly joining in on a bean bag toss, or building their very own scarecrow, or getting their faces painted by event volunteers.
Some oldschool festival favorites like the cake walk were also modernized, as Littles got to participate in a “cupcake” walk. Matches also made crafts, created their own costumes and played balloon games with their Bigs. By the looks of the crowd – the grownups were having just as much fun as the kids!
Thanks to everyone who makes this event possible, and to all the matches who joined us this year. What about you — were you at Fall Fest? What’s your favorite thing about Fall?
