The ECHO Fall Festival is a large scale event put together by our community organizations and businesses. The goal is to unite our whole community with an old fashioned Fall Festival. There’s something for everyone, young and old at Lions Park on October 28th.

The festival will bring together the popular Battle Royale, with other fall events like Trunk-or-Treat, a chili cookoff, a dessert bakeoff, a pie eating contest, pumpkin carving, a haunted forest, costume contests, and game booths.

Here is what is happening At The Echo Fall Festival 

 Battle Royale

The Nerf Wars again! Back by popular demand, the Battle Royale will be better than ever. Costumes are encouraged. Work with your team, come up with a plan of attack, then sign-up for the team theme costume contest.

Live Music by Jarod Woods 

During a break in conversation at a lively Anchorage bar, you might hear a line from Jared Woods’ extensive list of original tunes. “Got a red guitar to play blue songs/To break down doors, right or wrong,” lyrics from his song “Cold blood.”

Support Our Internship Program

Our internship program is taking off! Both the ECHO and the Cache are seeking businesses who want to advertise as SPONSORS of this program.

The for-credit internship program is open to any 9-12th graders enrolled in an ASD school (even homeschool).

We see this as an INVESTMENT in our students, a way for them to explore our community as journalists. They will make connections with people, observe and interview, use research instead of judgment, and report on what they’ve learned with integrity.
