To the Editor:

The air is growing crisp and cool, the kids are back to school and soon we will be inundated with pumpkin spice everything. Yes, fall is coming.

In Trumbull, we plan to embrace this change of season in spectacular style. Two days of food trucks galore, carnival rides, music, mingling with neighbors and fireworks to beat all fireworks.

The fun starts Friday, September 9 at Hillcrest Middle School. Doors are open 5 to 10 p.m. “Desert Highway” will take the stage at 7:30 to celebrate the music of The Eagles. The $5 admission covers your entrance fee for Friday and Saturday so be sure to come back at noon the next day to get your unlimited ride bracelet.

“Jen Durkin & The Business” will delight music lovers across the genres with their unique fusion of funk, gospel and world music beginning at 5:30 followed by none other than the THS Golden Eagle Marching Band, who never fail to delight, at 7:30. It all culminates in an aerial display that will blow you away so pull up a chair and look to the sky.

Trumbull doesn’t stop there though. Sunday we head to the Town Hall green for the 38th Annual Trumbull Arts Festival. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. you’ll find stall after stall of local artists, crafters, and musical talent. There is a Children’s Creative Center, day-long entertainment and food vendors making this a much-loved event that young and old will enjoy. And did I mention it is free admission? We are truly lucky to have such a wonderful weekend in store.

If you’d like to be part of the action please volunteer to help make the Fall Festival and Arts Festival a success. To volunteer at the Fall Festival on Friday or Saturday please contact Stuart McCarthy at smccarthy@trumbull-ct.gov. To volunteer at the Arts Festival on Sunday please contact arts@trumbull-ct.gov.

It’s going to be a great weekend to be in Trumbull that’s for sure. I look forward to seeing the town out celebrating in force.
