JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The beginning of autumn means the start of the fall festival season.

There are fall festivals, and there is the Johns Creek Fall Festival.

This year will be a trifecta of popular events, merging the Fall Family Festival, the farmers market and the city's Touch-a-Truck into one giant event.

Johns Creek Communications Manager Doug Nurse said the city has rolled three great family events into one "super day" at Newtown Park.

"We wanted to create that critical mass of entertainment – a synergy, if you will – to maximize the enjoyment of the whole family," Nurse said. "And Johns Creek has so many families with young children."

"So this seemed like a great way to keep everybody happy," he said.

The combination means families can take advantage of several entertainment options in one trip. They can:

• buy fresh produce;

• enjoy the many games and carnival activities of the Fall Festival;

• let kids get a kick out of exploring the city's big trucks, front end loaders, police cars and fire equipment;

• and sample the vendor food stalls.

The Johns Creek Farmers Market has been drawing as many as 25 vendors every Saturday since opening in June. The market offers certified organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables and other special treats for your family.

Touch-a-Truck lets kids "sit in the driver's seat" in some of the Public Works Department equipment used to construct the many projects currently under way around Johns Creek.

These projects include intersection improvements on Old Alabama Road, miles of sidewalk in different parts of the city and renovations in city parks.

Touch-A-Truck also features toy dump truck races, prizes and giveaways.

The Fall Family Festival, returning for its seventh year, includes such favorite activities, such as a bounce house, giant slide, face-painting, animal demonstrations and bungee run.

Live music is on-hand for everyone to enjoy as well as that great favorite of young and old – a pie eating contest.

Admission to the day's events is free. Tickets for individual Fall Family Festival activities will be available for purchase.
