KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) – Bays Mountain Park is making sure fall is at the forefront of Saturday’s activities with Fall Fest, a special celebration of the beautiful time of year for the park’s 50th anniversary.
According to the park’s website, visitors on Saturday will find events for all ages scattered throughout the park in addition to usual offerings.
Children’s activities are planned for 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and will include pumpkin painting, airbrush tattoos, crafts and more.
Recreation Coordinator Mark Kilgore said, “It’s an important event because it allows families to come out. The last couple of years we had with covid issues going on. This is a fun safe place for everybody to come out walk a trail, see a show, watch a planetarium, listen to music we’ve got the zipline going. There’s a variety of things for people to do.”
