For it’s October First Friday event, Noblesville Main Street is again hosting its annual Fall Fest on the downtown square trick-or-treating, a scarecrow contest, hayrides, pumpkin decorating, live music and more.
A popular draw is the return of the soup cook-off between Noblesville businesses. This year’s lineup includes soups from Ginger’s Cafe, Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano, Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank, Texy Mexy, Aspen Greek Grill, Grindstone Public House and Perkins Restaurant. Soups are $1 per sample or $3 per bowl. The Lion’s Club will be on-site serving sandwiches.
“We are so excited to host one of our most treasured events of the year,” said Lorna Steele, Noblesville Main Street executive director. “Fall Fest has something for all ages, and this year is on track to be extra special.”
New this year, David Smith from the Food Network’s “Halloween Wars,” will be at the event carving pumpkins. Smith’s carvings will be displayed on more than nine pumpkins sponsored by local businesses and neighbors.
Children are encouraged to come in costume to trick-or-treat at designated merchant locations on the square.
