both ca­nines and their hu­man com­pan­ions.

Regis­tra­tion for the dog cos­tume con­test runs from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Con­test runs from 11:30 to 12 p.m.

A cos­tume pa­rade and con­test for all ages will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Cat­e­gories in­clude birth to age 4, 5 to 10 years, 11 to 15 years and 16 and over. Regis­tra­tion for the var­i­ous age groups will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

From 12:30 to 2 p.m., kids will also get the chance to en­joy trickor-treat­ing at lo­cal busi­nesses in the shop­ping cen­ter as they com­plete their age groups’ cos­tume con­test.

The event will also in­clude scare­crow mak­ing, pump­kin dec­o­rat­ing, a book mo­bile, photo booth, games, mu­sic and much more.

The Fall Fest will also in­clude a va­ri­ety of ven­dors of­fer­ing hand­made items and other good­ies for at­ten­dees of all ages to en­joy.

Food ven­dors in­clude Chick­fil-A East­point, Flat Chance Food Truck, WOLO Mo­bile Food Truck and Pablo’s Toc O’s Food Truck.

Sev­eral com­mu­nity groups and busi­nesses will also have ta­bles at the event, in­clud­ing Con­flict Res­o­lu­tion Cen­ter of Bal­ti­more County, Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Precinct 12, Ad­ven­ture Den­tal, Johns Hop­kins Bayview Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Duda-Ruck Fu­neral Home of Dun­dalk, Fair­lawn Apart­ments and New Light Lutheran Church.

Those hop­ing to do a lit­tle early hol­i­day shop­ping will be able to browse a va­ri­ety of ven­dors, in­clud­ing Us­born Books & More, PLJ Hand­crafted, No Shave Aid, Mock­ing­bird Lane, Fin­neran Jew­elry, Us­borne Books, Red Leaf Art, Mesh-eny Wreaths, Us­borne Books & More, MESH-eny Wreaths & More, Power Home Re­mod­el­ing, Beaches, Per­feery Posh Jew­els by Pa­parazzi, Scentsy, Dun­dalk Dan’s Beef Jerky and 1113 Cre­ations.

The event is pre­sented by the Dun­dalk Re­nais­sance Cor­po­ra­tion (DRC).

As DRC com­mu­nity en­gage­ment co­or­di­na­tor Chris Pineda noted, the aim is to of­fer a fun way to unite the com­mu­nity while bring­ing ex­po­sure to the shop­ping cen­ter (i.e. “Main Street”).

“The pur­pose of the event is to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether to en­joy a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties with their chil­dren, as well as visit our Main Street and the busi­nesses,” Pineda told the Ea­gle last year. “One of DRC’s tasks is to cel­e­brate com­mu­nity, and the Fam­ily Fall Fes­ti­val is one way that it ex­em­pli­fies that mis­sion.”

Satur­day prom­ises to be a busy day in the Dun­dalk Vil­lage Shop­ping Cen­ter as, on the other side of Vet­er­ans Park, the Dun­dalk Farm­ers Mar­ket wraps up its sea­son with one last chance at farm-fresh lo­cal pro­duce from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The Dun­dalk-Pat­ap­sco Neck His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, at 4 Cen­ter Place across from the Dun­dalk Post Of­fice, will also be get­ting into the spirit, dec­o­rat­ing the in­side of the mu­seum with a “boo­ti­ful” Hal­loween dis­play sure to de­light vis­i­tors of all ages. The mu­seum will be open on Satur­day, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. dur­ing the fall fes­ti­val.

Beyond Hal­loween, the DRC is al­ready plan­ning its next big event, the an­nual Hol­i­day Hol­i­day Hoopla.

Set for Satur­day, Dec. 1, that event will in­clude a cookie tour and street fair, mounted in con­junc­tion with the Dun­dalk-East­field Re­cre­ation Coun­cil’s long-run­ning Christ­mas Pa­rade and Santa in the Park event.

For now, though, the DRC is fo­cus­ing on pro­vid­ing a mem­o­rable Fam­ily Fall Fes­ti­val for all to en­joy.
