First "Wall in the Fall" a Fun Family Festival

The Wall Economic Development Corporation and Wall Badlands-Area Chamber of Commerce partnered to host the first “Wall in the Fall” event Sunday, October 2nd from 11 am – 5 pm, right off Wall’s famous Main Street. The event featured over 20 games and activities hosted or sponsored by Wall’s businesses, organizations, and high school groups. Local band Country Rush performed from 1 pm – 5 pm, allowing for event attendees to break out their dancing shoes and enjoy the day.

The goal of the event was to provide a fun, family activity for the community and showcase all the great things Wall has to offer beyond the traditional tourism season. 

"Wall is a great place to be in the fall," Cheyenne McGriff, the Executive Director of the Wall Economic Development Corporation said. "All Main Street businesses are open, the weather is great, the fall colors are beautiful throughout the area, and there are several opportunities for activity and recreation. We wanted to showcase this with the 'Wall in the Fall' event, and we believe it was a success!"

A few of the games and activities included: A “missile” shoot hosted by Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, Badlands National Park “Sun Fun”, an appearance by Smokey Bear, a fall baking contest hosted by Golden West Telecommunications, pumpkin decorating, a cupcake and cookie walk and much more! Caramel apples, sno-cones, popcorn and other treats kept kids and adults alike snacking and playing all afternoon.

The Wall Economic Development Corporation and Wall Badlands-Area Chamber of Commerce were pleased with the turnout and positive feedback from the event. The groups plan to continue the event for years to come. You can find more photos and information about the "Wall in the Fall" event on the Wall Economic Development Corporation Facebook page.
