The popular Fall Festival returns to Main Street in Collinsville on October 24, 2015. Sponsored by Scott Credit Union, the Fall Festival activities begin at 10am with a Chili Cook-Off where visitors can sample a variety of different chili recipes from the vendors, many of which are local non-profits. First, second and third-place awards are presented to the best traditional and non-traditional chili, as well as the best-decorated booth.

Get the kids in costume, bring a candy bucket and make the rounds of participating Main Street businesses as they hand out treats from 11am-2pm. At noon, head to the Main Stage where the kids costume contest will be held. Awards are given in four age groups: Babies, Pre-K through kindergarten, first through third grade, and fourth through sixth grade. From each age group, judges will choose “Most Creative” and best “TV/Movie/Cartoon,” with the Mayor picking his favorite for “Mayor’s Choice.”

A “Critter Crawl” pet parade steps off from the Mutts on Main Dog Park located at 509 W. Main Street at 2pm. Organizers encourage costumes, but they are not required. While supplies last, participants will receive a goodie bag from the Animal Rescue and Relief Foundation booth.

The event is organized by the Collinsville Main Street Community Association and graciously sponsored by Scott Credit Union. “We strive to offer events throughout the year that draw people Uptown to keep the district vibrant, unique and a place where our local businesses thrive,” says event organizer Tami Springer. “And Scott Credit Union’s generous financial support allows us to make that happen.”

The mission of the Collinsville Main Street Community Association is to improve the quality of life by strengthening the downtown as the center of the community through concentrated efforts in volunteerism in organization, promotion, design, and economic restructuring.
