After a year off due to COVID, Clarksburg celebrated once again at its “Fall Fest in the ‘burg” on Saturday. With sparkling October weather, more than 250-300 people shopped at the dozen or so vendors, ate ribeye sandwiches and hot dogs prepared by the Clarksburg Fire Department, and enjoyed seeing a parking lot full of classic cars of the past in top notch condition. Kids were entertained by a bouncy house and a huge slide along with pumpkin painting.
Clarksburg Mayor Howell Wayne Todd said it was good to see so many people from the town along with visitors from other communities in Carroll County.
“We could not have asked for a better day to do this, and it is so good for the community spirit,” said the mayor. “Clarksburg is a great place to live, and events like this Fall Fest make it even better. Moms and dads, old and young, kids galore, and even family dogs make for a festive atmosphere.”
Todd gave credit to City Recorder Leigh Grice for planning the successful day.
“Leigh and a few of her friends gave a lot of effort to putting this event together and making it a success,” he said.
Clarksburg has several events planned as we approach the holiday season. The lit snowflakes along the highway will be on display beginning in early November, and the renovation/expansion of City Hall is nearing completion.
Todd said the Grand Opening would be Saturday, November 12 at 10 a.m. The Clarksburg Christmas Parade is Thursday December 8 beginning at 6 p.m., and the annual Christmas Open House at City Hall will be Saturday December 10.
