We could not have imagined a better way to kick off the fall season than trick or treating, dancing to a DJ, pumpkin decorating, and games at our annual Fall Festival for NNCCF families.  More than 150 children with cancer, siblings, parents, and volunteers joined the NNCCF staff last Friday for a memorable afternoon.

We saw many creative costumes and enjoyed the enthusiasm of the families, staff and volunteers. This year, some notable characters made their way to the festival including Lego Man, Jesse from Toy Story, Cinderella and many more!

Here are a few Fall Festival testimonials from our families:

“It was sure great to see you and everyone at the Fall Festival. All the costumes and decorations were spectacular!”  – Dad

“It doesn’t look like Natalie will be up for trick or treating, but now she won’t feel like she missed out because the fall festival was PERFECT!!!! Thank you again to everyone for such a great event. Natalie loves holidays!” – Dad

“Thanks also for the Fall Festival! Elizabeth still tells everyone about how she got to meet the real Cinderella :)” – Mom

“Thank you for inviting us to the greatest party ever.”  – Big brother
