EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT)- The Fall Festival may not officially start until Monday and some of the booths and rides were closed but the children who came to family day along Franklin St in Evansville didn’t seem to mind.

Dennis Nettles from the West Side Nut Club says family day is a way for families, especially those with small children, to come and enjoy the sights without dealing with the crowds. Nettles is recommending families with small children to check in at the lost and found booth as they arrive in case they get separated.

Remington Montgomery, 5, says he likes going to places like the Fall Festival and especially enjoys the rides like bumper cars. Remington says he hasn’t gone on all the rides yet, but he’s working on it.

Family day ran from 1:00 to 7:00 Sunday afternoon. The Fall Festival kicks off Monday morning, with the Half Pot starting at 10:00 a.m. Rides will open at 2:00 p.m.
