The Paulding Fine Arts Association is hosting its 2013 Fall Fest Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature about 60 to 80 vendors in Dallas along Main Street, down Johnston Street and on the downtown square, said event chair Christy Morehouse.
Morehouse has overseen the event for about seven of the 11 years the association has hosted it.
“We are trying to support the community and support the arts at the same time,” she said
The festival helps the association raise funds for such initiatives as a $500 scholarship for one Paulding student attending college to study a form of art, she said. Morehouse said her goal is to grow the event so they can add money to the scholarship.
Admission to the event is free. The association charges booth fees to the vendors of $20 for association members and $40 for nonmembers.
Morehouse said they are expecting between 800 and 1,000 attendees.
There will be entertainment throughout the day from dancing to singing. All of the entertainment is donated, she said.
