The City of Alexandria is hosting Fall Festival this weekend with a moon bounce, hot food, and everyone’s favorite fair activity: free health screenings.

The Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is leading the event in the parking lot of Southern Towers (5067 Seminary Road) from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.

“This free event promises a fun-filled day for all ages, in addition to onsite health screenings,” DCHS said in a release. “The event lineup includes live performances, open mic opportunities, hot food and dessert options, many local vendors, and free health screenings by Kaiser Permanente. There will be a moon bounce for the children in addition to arts and crafts.”

The event listing said a mobile unit from Kaiser Permanente will be on hand to provide health screenings for adults in the nearby community.

“Going into a new season, its important to be in the know about your health,” the event listing said.
