If you haven’t noticed yet, the hot summer days are starting to fade away and its becoming sweater weather. If you’re a resident of Blackstone you gotta admit, there’s something magical about autumn. Along with cooler temps, an influx of fun fall activities are happening in and around town. One of the things we look forward to most is the Blackstone Fall Festival organized by Blackstone Parks and Recreation
Despite the 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic, Blackstone Parks and Recreation is organizing the Fall Festival this weekend, October 17th. It’s going to be little different with health and safety guidelines set forth by the Board of Health but we expect it to be as fun as last year.
Saturday, October 17 11AM to 4PM
Health and Safety Guidelines
- Masks are required for all participants – vendors and attendees
- Parks and Recreation will also have several hand sanitizer stations and each booth is required to have hand sanitizer at their site
- Everyone should practice social distancing
What to expect: Activities at the Blackstone Fall Festival 2020
Decorate pumpkins on-site! The activity is FREE but it’s important to register so the organizers can ensure there’s enough supplies for everyone. This year, stickers will be used to decorate the pumpkins due to Covid-19. Each person will get a kit which will minimize cross handling of decorations.
Kids are highly encouraged to participate but anyone can join if they want to!
This year the Blackstone Fall Festival will have a Scarecrow Contest. There’s already participants with their scarecrows displayed – find them on Scarecrow Row on Roosevelt park!
Voting for the Fan Favorite is available online until October 17. This year there are 6 entries and you can vote on the poll at the Parks and Recreation website!
There will be several new vendors this year aside from the regular vendors that we’ve had in past Fall Festivals.
Lots of games will be available for kids and families

We are very excited for this year’s Blackstone Fall Festival. We know it will be a little different, but I’m sure it will still be a memorable one.
