ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) --

The city of Enterprise is gearing up for their annual fall festival with a few changes in place to keep everyone safe.

The city will still celebrate the season, but some things may look a little different than in years past.

“We have limited our vendor capacity to about half so that we can make sure they are socially distance for their safety as well as the patron’s safety,” said Enterprise Chamber of Commerce executive director Erin Grantham. “We are adding all kinds of hand sanitizer stations up and down the streets for public use and we have had to limit some of the things we would normally do that would cause people to gather such as bouncy houses and things like that.”

Three stages will be set up at various locations downtown providing music throughout the event.

The city is powering through with the fall festival this year knowing their community needs it.

“Our small business is the heart of our community,” Grantham added. “They are the heart and soul of our community and they have suffered tremendously due to the situation. Traffic downtown has been very slow, so this is a great opportunity to show off those small businesses.”

You can do more than just shop at the festival CrossFit FXT will hold several activities.

There will be a pumpkin toss for children and hay bale flipping contest for adults.

“We actually came to the chamber to do something and we kind of had a powwow and brainstormed and came up with the ideas,” said Owner of CrossFit FXT Traci Gulledge.

The whole community chipping in to ensure everyone has a fun, safe weekend.

“We’d love to be able to have people to come out and have a little bit of activity,” Gulledge explained. “I know that several of us I’ve had several months to where we were cooped up inside and not being able to get a lot of physical activity.”

The fall festival will be from 11 a.m. To 4 p.m. on Saturday.
