The 6th annual Allen Fall Fest commences this Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Allen Senior Recreation Center, its parking lot, and the Allen Heritage Village across the street. The festival will be ripe with activities, including an antique sale, village tours, and, its main event, a car show.

“The show is put on by a classic car club called The Morning Maniacs,” organizer Denise Fenner said. “They run it, and they’ll have a DJ out there playing old music and doing trivia.”

Inside the senior center, 50 vendors will be take up the entire building. Texas Roadhouse will be present in the kitchen selling lunches, and the Allen Animal Shelter will be bringing dogs for adoption. Familiar activities such as prize drawings for gift cards will take place, as well as some new additions.

The Fall Fest will include a car show, food, crafts, and tours of the Allen heritage villages.

“This year, we have something new. We’re gonna have what we call the Park Trail Train Ride,” Fenner said. “It’s a train consisting of three cars large enough for adults and children. It’s three dollars a ride, and it’s the only thing that costs anything unless you’re buying food or something else.”

The fest lasts from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the organizers welcome the entire family to the event.
