Just because there is no Fall Funfest in Margate does not mean there is not ANY Fall Fun in Margate! There will be classic Fall Funfest decor throughout the city of Margate, focusing on business areas. Strolling acoustic musicians, characters for kids, entertainers, and virtual contests such as a Pumpkin Photo Contest and Receipts are All the Rage. In person activities include a treasure hunt, The Pet Salon Pics with Pets with professional photos by PhotoGraphics Photography and Congo Falls Margate is open for family fun mini golf! The actual, full blown, Margate Fall Funfest By the Bay has been rescheduled to September 25th & 26th, 2021.
“Not doing Funfest this year broke our hearts, but we would not let it break the Margate spirit. We are taking the Fun from Funfest and spreading it all over town. We want everyone to welcome in the Fall safely and with a smile…even if we can’t see it behind your masks,” said Margate Business Association President Ed Berger.
Activities will engage participants with both in person and virtual programs, a little something for everyone. Retailers will hold sidewalk sales, perfect for holiday shopping. Restaurants will offer their tantalizing fare- some will offer both outdoor and indoor dining, in accordance with the Governor’s new Executive Order. Fall Fun in Margate is a great opportunity to support local small businesses while enjoying the scenery and participating in some fun events.
