WarsawFest is a sign that fall has indeed arrived, and it will kick-off Friday with Family Fun Night in the Town Park from 6 to 9 p.m.

This year, the Kids Zone will be open with attractions including slides, bounce houses, the Bungee Run and Rock ‘n Roll. Wristbands for unlimited rides will be sold for $10, and you can purchase wristbands for Saturday at the same price. If purchased on Saturday, wristbands will cost $15.

The movie Monsters Inc. will be shown at 7 p.m. Entry is free of charge.

The main event

Saturday the event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Highlights include the Baby and Beauty Pageant, which starts at 9 a.m. with music from DJ Robbie Grimstead to keep the crowd upbeat.

Registration for the car and truck show begins at 8 a.m. at the Warsaw United Methodist Church or participants can preregister online. Judging will start at 10 a.m.

The participating vehicles will line Main Street in the morning and later join in the parade. “Besides having some of the cleanest big rigs, pickups, cars, motorcycles and golf carts in the Northern Neck, we’ll have DJ Brain Gracik spinning toons until noon,” said Sara Carroll, president of Warsaw-Richmond County Chamber of Commerce.

The Parade starts at noon and will leave from Northern Neck Electric Co-op, go up Belleville, turn on Main and return via Hamilton.
