International City Fall Festival Wraps Up in Warner Robins | News
Music, food, and family fun filled Commercial Circle in Warner Robins, Saturday.
The city hosted its annual International City Fall Festival.
"It's a time for the city to come out and celebrate," said the festival's chairperson, Gena DeBoe.
DeBoe says this year's motto is "Remembering yesterday, and celebrating tomorrow."
"Where we're at now is where it all started back with Wellston. Now, we have Warner Robins. We have a wonderful base, colleges, and so many businesses," said DeBoe.
The festival provided a play area for children. The area included bouncy inflatables, rock climbing and face painting.
Several bands performed throughout the day. Dance groups entertained the crowd.
"We're doing "Thriller" by Michael Jackson," said Ali Burress.
Vendors provided arts, crafts and food.
"Lots of food... from fried corn to funnel cakes," said DeBoe.
Tory Jaeck, of Kathleen, says the variety of fun is impressive.
"I like a lot of stuff that's geared towards the kids," said Jaeck. "It's just nice to see the family oriented type of stuff, and you couldn't ask for a better day."
DeBoe says the festival was revitalized three years ago to generate revenue for the city, without raising taxes. She says it continues to be a success.
