Fall Fest Adapted to Meet COVID-19 Guidelines
Update: In adherence to the governor's mandate Fall Fest will only be able to sponsor virtual activities: People and Pet costume contest, & Quilt Challenge on-line. The following was our second attempt to organize our 5th Annual Fall Festival...
This year, we’ve all had to do a lot of adapting. We have been wearing masks, social distancing, and attending virtual gatherings in an effort to maintain some degree of normalcy and safety in these challenging times. So, in a year full of drive-by birthday parties, baby showers, and graduations, the Mora Creative Council thought it only fitting to create a similar experience for our annual Fall Festival. The event might look a little bit different this year, but we are still going to offer a fun, educational, and family friendly experience for our Mora families.
Typically, our Fall Festival takes place in the County Complex area, where families can eat, play games, participate in costume contests, and engage with our Trunk-or-Treat vendors. This year, Fall Festival will take place in the comfort of your own vehicle! On October 31st, from 1-4 pm, families will travel through Mora getting treats and looking for clues. Line up will begin at Fred’s Lumber, where our costume clad kiddos will have their pictures taken for the costume contest (you can also email your own photos to email@example.com). Then, individual vehicles will be directed through El Alto road spaced accordingly. There will be distanced Trunk-or-Treat participants stationed along the road handing out activities and treats. The route will end at the St. Vrain Mill, where families will then be directed down Main Street.
Along Main Street, there will be a drive by scavenger hunt. A week long medallion hunt will take place with hidden clues in public places. The winner of the medallion hunt will be awarded a $200 cash prize! In addition to all these fun activities, we will also be having a virtual pumpkin decorating contest, a virtual pet costume contest, and a virtual quilt show. We sincerely hope this can be a bright spot in 2020 for Mora.
As is the case with most of our projects, we wouldn’t be able to do this without the help of our amazing community. The Mora Creative Council would like to thank you all for your continued support. If you would like to donate to the cause, you can do so through the PayPal donate button on the top of this page, or by mail. If you would like to sponsor a scarecrow or participate in the drive-by Trunk-or-Treat, please fill out the attached forms and return them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
