The Spring into Fall Festival in Warrenton Virginia was a huge success. I arrived around 11am and although the parking lots were pretty full I was able to find a spot and walk over to the festivities. Once I got to Main St. there were tents and families everywhere. It was great to see so many people out and about enjoying Old Town Warrenton and what it has to offer.
As I walked around the booths everyone was all smiles. There was something for everyone. I started at the the courthouse and worked my way down Main St. browsing all of the vendors that came out to share their products and services. The city emergency services were there and the Warrenton Police Department even had their own booth. There were face painting booths for the kids, food trucks, services for house and home, crafts and more! The politicians were all adequately represented as well as the churches and healthcare services. Oh and the dogs…there were so many adorable pups, that alone was worth the trip. At the end of the day the families with small kids holding their balloons with painted faces headed back to their cars, tired out from a fun day in Old Town Warrenton!
