Fuquay Varina Is One Of The Great Communities Of The Triangle
One of the great perks of managing the Avalon Springs neighborhood is getting to know Fuquay Varina. I will admit that all I knew about Fuquay before Avalon Springs was the interesting sounding name of the town itself. But one of the m favorite parts about my work at Avalon Springs has been discovering all the great things about Fuquay Varina. From the downtown shops to the many fun community events, Fuquay Varina is truly a gem of the Triangle.
Fuquay Varina has no shortage of fun events this Halloween weekend. Thanks to the downtown Fuquay Varina website for all the below information.
Trick or Treat Event Friday October 30, 2009
The Fuquay-Varina Revitalization Association is pleased to announce that the merchants on Main and Broad Streets in the historic shopping district will sponsor a Trick or Treat event on Friday, October 30 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm . Last year, this event was a tremendous success because it provided a friendly, safe environment for the little ones to enjoy the holiday. It’s easy to participate!
Dress-up your lil’ ghosts and goblins, grab a bag and visit the merchants on Main and Broad Streets that display the sign,“Trick or Treat Here!” The merchants on Main and Broad Streets promise to scare-up lots of treats and fun for your family, so make sure to visit them on Friday, October 30 between 2:00 – 5:00 pm.
Fuquay Varina Downtown Festival and Chili Cook-Off
Please join us for the 7th Annual Downtown Chili Cook-Off in Historic Downtown Fuquay-Varina on Saturday, October 31st. The event is part of the Day in Downtown Festival which draws more than 7000 people to downtown for a day of family fun. The Cook-off is becoming quite a Fuquay-Varina tradition! In 2008, ten chili cook-off teams competed for the $500 grand prize and hundreds of people tasted great chili all day long! All this good natured, fun, competition helped raise much needed funds for downtown revitalization in the heart of downtown Fuquay-Varina.
In addition to a first place prize of $500, there is a second place prize of $300 and the third place winner will receive $150. All awards are voted on by the public.
If you’re not a cook, but you love to eat chili, come on down to the Downtown Chili Cook-off on Saturday, October 31st from 10:30 am – 3:30 pm and taste, taste, taste!! You can taste all the chili entries for $5.00. We’ll be located in the large parking lot on Main Street near Cooley’s Restaurant.
Stop By Avalon Springs
When you are done trick or treating or before hanging out at the downtown Festival be sure to stop by Avalon Springs which is only minutes from downtown.
