Epic Fall Movie Night to Replace Fall Festival & Chili Cook-Off

 

Claremont, NH – The Greater Claremont Chamber of Commerce’s (GCCC) and City of Claremont Parks & Recreation Department’s 23rd annual Fall Festival will not take place on October 3 as previously scheduled due to COVID-19. Instead, they will present a distance-friendly Epic Fall Movie Night for families on Friday, October 9 at the Grace River Church parking lot on Maple Avenue.

 

The Epic Fall Movie Night will feature a drive-in presentation of Toy Story 4 on a 20-foot screen. Gates will open at 5:30PM, with the movie starting at dusk approximately 7:00pm. The event is 100% free to attend, although the Chamber requests families bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Claremont Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry, if it is comfortably within their means.

 

This free public screening was made possible by sponsorship from Ford of Claremont and Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram of Claremont.

 

“Even in a year where some of our favorite local events just aren’t possible, the Chamber and Parks & Recreation Department are looking for new ways to bring people together that allow for both fun and commonsense precautions,” GCCC Executive Director Elyse Crossman says. “The Fall Festival will be back, but we also believe the Epic Fall Movie Night could become a new tradition of its own!”

 

Hot concessions will be available for purchase due to generous donations of time and food from Epic Food Truck, Tremont House of Pizza and North Country Smokehouse. Proceeds from concession sales during the event benefit both the Greater Claremont Chamber of Commerce and the Claremont Parks and Recreation Department.

 

Additional activities will include bingo with prizes, and a live on-site featuring talent from 93.3 The Wolf Radio Station.

 

In accordance with state and CDC guidance, handwashing and sanitization stations will be available at the event, and cars will be distanced appropriately for the screening.  Mask wearing is strongly encouraged when visiting the concession area and facilities.

 

Concession menu and additional information are available on the Chamber's website; www.greaterclaremontnh.org/
