Postponed fall festival raises money by engaging the Jonesboro community

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Saturday festival in Jonesboro got postponed to Sunday due to heavy rain but organizers were not even able to tell.

The Valley View Fall Festival was at the Valley View Ruritan Park and Pavilion. It was held to raise money for the technology department at Valley View High School.

Shelly Anderson helped organized the event and she did not expect the turn out they had.

"We really thought that it might be lower because it is a Sunday and that is family and church day," said Anderson. "But we are amazed we have so many people out here we are doing fabulous we got 35 game booths that are hopping and we got inflatables that are literally hopping our stage is blowing up and we are really having fun."

The fall festival ran from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and raised $12,000.
