Pictures: Fall for Cary Festival 2018

Cary, NC – Saturday, October 27, 2018 saw the Fall for Cary festival on Academy Street and elsewhere in Downtown Cary.

Food trucks, costumes, performances, contests and artist booths – Fall for Cary, presented by Heart of Cary Association and Town of Cary, stretched south on Academy from Park Street to Dry Avenue, with satellite events across Downtown. After a Nor’easter swept the region with rain on Friday, the crowds came out in force for a cool, dry afternoon.

Cultural Arts Manager Lyman Collins MC’d the contests in the park.

Super Mario (and entourage) took a respectable third in the first costume contest.

The man in the black cape brought a live iguana to the show. They came in second. The bear took first.
