Platt fun run on Saturday includes car show, music and pumpkins

This Saturday, October 19, Platt Tech will hold a fun for everyone at the Platt Tech Fall Festival and Car Cruise.

In addition to the chance to see cars from yesteryear, families can enjoy 50s and 60s music while they get their faces painted, decorate pumpkins in the pumpkin patch, dine on a variety of food, check out the deals at the computer fair and shop for unique treasures and holiday gifts at the craft fair.

The festival will be held at Platt Tech, 600 Orange Avenue in Milford, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. — admission is free.

Pumpkins of all sizes will be available for purchase in the pumpkin patch. A variety of treats will also be available at the bake sale booth co-sponsored by the National Honor Society and Platt's PFO. Themed gift baskets donated by Platt Tech shops and staff will also be available for sale that day.

The Car Cruise is open to all cars regardless of make, model or car year, with a suggested donation of $10 per car. Trophies will be awarded. All proceeds from the event benefit student activities.
