Kids and adults got the chance to make their own caramel apples and decorate pumpkins at Geneva’s fall festival. A mechanical bull and bounce house were all part of the allure, as organizations like Geneva Reads connected with children while listening to some live music.
Marieli Lopez with the Geneva Business Improvement District helped organize the event.
“We would love to have more family-focused community events because there’s not enough family events here in Geneva,” Marieli Lopez with the Geneva BID said. “So this is why we decided to extend what Touch-a-Truck was into a nice family festival.”
Upstate Fiber Networks sponsors event
Upstate Fiber Networks is this year’s sponsor.
“We want to be involved in the communities that we’re servicing,” Marketing and Community Events Manager Clay Bailey added. “We’re expanding our market throughout the Finger Lakes. Up next is Canandaigua. We also market Seneca Falls, Newark and Palmyra. So we’re just really excited to keep growing and getting plugged in here locally.”
Those who helped organize the event at the South Exchange Street parking lot say the day was a success.
“This is the first year that Touch-a-Truck has collaborated with the Geneva Business Improvement District and the City of Geneva,” says Marieli Lopez with the Geneva BID. “The turnout was amazing and the feedback was even more amazing.”
