Fall Festival entertainment includes ZCHS show choirs, The Impalas


The Impalas are back by popular demand.

“They have generated more and more interest and followers,” Fall Festival Chair Tim Reinhart said. 

The Impalas, an Indianapolis event band, will perform at the Fall Festival’s Lions Lounge for the fifth consecutive year. The performance is set for 7 to 11 p.m. Sept. 7 in the lounge, which is for guests 21 years and older. The entertainment tent converts into the lounge at 5 p.m.

“They play a lot of songs that I like, which is important,” said Reinhart, laughing. “There is a lot more dancing, especially in the second set. I don’t know if that has something to do with the Sun King beverages. It’s a good night out. It was designed for something for the parents to do while the kids are in the carnival area.”

The Impalas play everything from The Jackson 5 to Queen to Journey to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

“They have a pretty extensive song list, which is nice,” Reinhart said. “They have several singers.

The Zionsville Community High School’s show choirs, Royalaires and Choralaires, start the performances the at the entertainment tent at 1 p.m. Performances by the middle schools and high school orchestras follow.

“The performances by the school choirs and orchestra are always really popular,” Reinhart said. “They are filled with parents, friends and neighbors. It attracts a big crowd.”

Make A Joyful Noise Studio, a music school, will present a student/faculty concert featuring piano, guitar, drums and more, at 1 p.m. Sept. 8
