SALISBURY ó Team Chevrolet is hosting a fall festival this weekend and raising money to benefit the Rowan County United Way.
The event, called Halloween Team Scream Contest and Fall Festival, is Saturday at the dealership, located at 404 S. Jake Alexander Blvd., from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
ěWe want people to know we want to support our community, and the United Way is a great opportunity to do that,î said Cindy Landry, director of business development.
It will be a fun event for families to enjoy, she said.
Landry encourages people to support the community and enjoy their time.
There will be lots of activities including a scream contest. The person with the winning scream will get to scream on air for WRFX 99.7 FM, that will broadcast live at the event.
The scream contest will take place at noon. Judges will vote on the best adult and child in both the male and female categories. There is a $1 charge to enter the contest. The best screamers will be named the Scream King and the Scream Queen. Winners will get trophies and other prizes.
There will be a palm reader, a cake walk, face painting, bowling, bounce houses and a candy search.
Those who play will have to search for candy in a pile of hay.
There will be a petting zoo and also spiders, snakes and other reptiles from Dan Nicholas Park.
Several games will include a fishing game, bean bag toss and pumpkin ring toss.
Participants will have to toss a hula hoop around a pumpkin toss, said Shelley Smith, social media manager and event coordinator.
Some activities are $1 to play and participate and others are 25 cents, with proceeds going to the United Way campaign.
There will be hot dogs and drinks for sale for $1.
Attendees can also buy tickets for a 50/50 raffle. Tickets are $1 or four tickets for $3 and can be bought at Team Chevrolet.
Steppiní Out Dance Company, located in Spencer, will perform.
At 1 p.m. there will be a pie-throwing event where Police Chief Rory Collins and Sheriff Kevin Auten will let people throw pies at them.
ěWe are grateful that Sheriff Kevin Auten and Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins care so much for the United Way theyíre willing to get attacked by the public with pies,î Smith said.
Organizers hope this will be an annual event to raise money for the United Way campaign.
