Nut Club, Mayor Winnecke announce Fall Festival will still happen

Local

EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – The West Side Nut Club, along with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, made an announcement regarding the Fall Festival Monday morning.

As of now, the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is on.

Officials want volunteers, staff, and attendees to be as safe as possible. They want to encourage people to follow proper safety protocols as they get ready to attend the festival in October.

Health department officials say they’re wanting to help the West Side Nut Club get information out about proper guidelines. As of right now, Indiana state code does not have mandates or requirements in place.

“The role of the health department is to support the CDC recommendations, around vaccines. We would love everyone to get their vaccines,” Lynn Herr with the health department said.

Anyone wishing to be fully vaccinated by the time of the festival should get their first shot within the next couple of weeks. Officials say it is a recommendation, not a requirement, for the time being. They just want to ensure everyone stays safe as the West Side Nut Club celebrates a milestone year.

“It’s a really special year for us. It’s the one hundreth year of our organization. To miss last year, and to hopefully come back this year with a great festival, we’re just really looking forward to it,” Publicity Chairman for the West Side Nut Club, Ryan Deck, said.
