It’s time for the second annual Madison Nursing Center Community Fall Festival, Saturday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
There will something for the whole family to enjoy, and you don’t have to have a friend or relative at the Center in order to attend, said Timako Glanton. Madison Nursing Center is opening its doors to the entire community and saying “Come on out and have a great time!”
There will be entertainment: face painting for the little ones (and not so little ones, perhaps), balloon artists making those irresistible balloon animals, bounce houses, carnival games like ‘go fish’ and the ‘duck pond’ and two-lane basketball (as well as prizes for game winners), clowns, live entertainment, D.J. music, and performances from Becky’s Dance Steps Studio.
There will also, of course, be food.
What would a fall festival be without delicious, aromatic food of every description? Several area vendors will be on hand to sell their wares, from barbecue, to funnel cakes, to chicken, chips, popcorn, candied apples and…wait, did somebody say ‘funnel cakes?’
But wait, there’s more! What makes this fall festival different from all others is the free health educational resource booths and free health screenings available to anybody who would like to take advantage of them. Several area health care organizations will be on hand to conduct the screenings, hand out education materials on various health issues, and answer questions.
The Madison Nursing Center is located at 2481 W. US 90, between the Madison Middle School and Madison County High School. Mark the date on your calendar, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring friends, neighbors, family, and anybody you enjoy have a great time with.
Come on out just to see who else will be there. After all, the entire community is invited!
