Children lined the walkways of Fred Miller Park Saturday, waiting in line for cotton candy or to head into the bouncy house to jump around.
“We’re just out having a good day,” said Jennie Jones, of Morristown, who brought her two grandchildren. “It’s a pretty day.”
The scene was the annual Morristown Parks and Recreation Fall Fest, which lasted from 3 p.m. until dusk.
The event included scarecrow displays, vendors, crafts, art and music.
Later, children enjoyed a movie at the Starlite Cinema.
The annual event has been a hit for years in Morristown and dozens strolled around the park Saturday enjoying the weather, the games and the wares being sold.
Brandi Pearson, owner of Makin Memories Cakes and Cupcakes, said it was her first time at the event. She had been a home baker for years, but decided to try the event to get her name out to the public.
“I think it’s a great event, so far,” she said.
On display were scrumptious cream covered cupcakes.
Even more than humans wanted Pearson’s creations. At one point, she had to swat a bee that kept hovering around.
“They’re after my maple cupcakes,” she said. “Anything sweet.”
Knick knacks, children’s clothes, crafts and several unique items were spread throughout the park to be sold.
Children also got to participate in a cake walk, bouncy house and the Surrey Fire Safety House was on hand.
Pearson said she was babysitting her 13-year-old granddaughter, Marissa, and 5-year-old grandson, Bryson. She heard about the event on the radio and knew she wanted to take them to get them out of the house.
She said they had a lot of fun.
“The kids love those bouncy houses,” she said.
