UPDATE: FallsFest 2013 Moved To MPEC

Posted: Updated:

FallsFest 2013 has been moved to the MPEC, 1000 5th Street in Wichita Falls.  The committee decided to go ahead with the contingency plan because of the high chance for rain.

As of now, this will remain an outdoor festival. If weather becomes an issue they have the option to move indoors.

The event will be held Friday, September 27 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and will continue on Saturday, September 28 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Tickets are $6 in advance, $8 at the gate, and $10 after 5 p.m.

FallsFest will feature two rocking concerts and host multiple events. Friday night's concert will include Casey Donahew Band with the Mullet Boys. The Marshall Tucker Band with Twicebroken will perform on Saturday.

The 5K and 15K races are scheduled for Saturday at 8 a.m. Registration has already begun, but it is not too late to sign up! Until Thursday, adults are $30 and kids 17 and younger are $20. Members of the Wichita Falls Runners Club (WFRC) who pre-register will receive a $2 discount.

Runners can still register the weekend of the races. On Friday and Saturday, adults are $35. Kids are $25. All participants will receive a free ticket to FallsFest.

FallsFest will also feature a Nuts-N-Bolts Run. It will begin at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. The first 200 paid entries will get a free T-shirt. The first drawing winner will receive two VIP Back Stage Passes, a $100 gift certificate to Red River Harley-Davidson and a dinner for two at Parkway Grill.

The second drawing winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to Red River Harley-Davidson and dinner for two at Parkway Grill. It is $25 for each rider and only $15 per passenger.

FallsFest will also host a sand volleyball tournament. It begins Saturday at 9 a.m. The price per player is only $25. The entry fee includes the tournament, a T-shirt, and concert. To register, call Judy Garnett at (940) 631-9019.

FallsFest is presented by Wichita Falls Streams and Valleys and the WFRC. All proceeds will be split among Wee-Chi-Tah Trail, Streams and Valleys, and WFRC projects.
