This year’s Reading Fall Street Faire will open with a special program to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. The Fall Street Faire Committee Chair, Brian Snell, commented, “The committee is hard at work to plan another successful community event. The Fall Street Faire is our way to kick off the fall and showcase downtown Reading.” It boasts large crowds and is family friendly, with many activities that are free or low cost. The afternoon will begin with the September 11 commemoration with bagpipes and drums played by the Irish American Police Officers Association along with the honor guard.
This year’s event will feature two stages, live entertainment, music, food and food trucks and unique vendors. Kids can enjoy inflatable structures and children’s activities, a “touch a truck” area where families can explore trucks and construction equipment and more.
The day will begin with Reading’s “Green” 5K sponsored by PureFit of Reading. The Fall Street 5K is a community-based road race open to both children and adults. Registration for the race opened in July. A pre- race warm up will be offered by PureFit Reading staff. The race begins and ends at Washington Street Park, located at 100 Washington Street, Reading, with an awards ceremony held at the park immediately following the race.
This Fall Street Faire is run almost entirely by dedicated volunteers, and additional volunteer and support, both in the planning and during the day of the event, is most welcome. Volunteer sign-ups may also be found on the event website or by emailing email@example.com
