International City Festival Returns for a Second Year | News
Warner Robins' International City Fall Festival will return this month for its second year in a row.
Gena Deboe with the Downtown Development Authority says the inaugural celebration proved a success. So, they want to make this one bigger and better.
Deboe says they're still accepting applications for vendors, ahead of the September 29th festival on Commerical Circle.
So far, she says about 20-percent more vendors than last year have applied to participate.
She says last year the festival brought out more than 3,000 people and made money.
Deboe said the festival does not receive funding from the city, and profits go toward downtown revitalization efforts, such as lighting, improving building facades and greenspaces.
She saiad, "We want everybody to be able to have a chance to participate. The more (vendors) that are out there, the more people we can draw, the more fun we can have, and that's really what it is all about."
Again, International City Fall Festival is September 29th and runs from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Commercial Circle.
Admission is free.
Expect to find a barbecue competition, improved children's area, shopping, food and entertainment, with country music singer and Houston County native Colby Dee performing as the headliner.
