You might make a day out of it and check out the Hunsader's Pumpkin Festival while up there! Hunsader's opens at 10am. You could get your family pumpkin pictures, watch the circus, check out the monster truck, go on a hayride, walk through a corn maze, eat some great food, and THEN drive over to watch some marching bands. The famous Riverview HS Marching Kilties will close the festival. Your kids will LOVE it!

For 14 years, FAME's efforts have supported our local band students at Englewood, Myakka and Vineland Elementary, L.A. Ainger Middle School, the Boca Grande Island School, Lemon Bay High School and more.
Since FAME has done and continues to do so much for our students and local band programs here in the Englewood area, let's all show our appreciation for their efforts by helping them make this year's music festival surpass all expectations by stopping in to enjoy some food, beverages and amazing music - including Saturday performances by LAAMS and LBHS Jazz Bands.
You can also donate silent auction items by completing this form and turning your donations into the front office at Ainger. Please turn in all Silent Auction Items by Friday, November 1st so we can get the items to FAME organizers.
