Carbondale organization holds Fall Fest
CARBONDALE, Ill. (KBSI) – Fall Fest was in full effect at the Carbondale Lenus Turley Park for the Black Chamber of Commerce of Southern Illinois on Saturday.
It was an opportunity for those in the community to learn about organizations and upcoming events in the Carbondale area while also getting a chance to support local businesses.
A member of the Black Chamber of Commerce of Southern Illinois and Carbondale United Stephanie Fraction said her organization just wanted to bring awareness to the event.
“We just want to fill the gap with just a community, and community awareness will have different guest speakers come out, just letting people know what is happening in their community in the different opportunities that they can be involved in and different things that they use can be involved in, as well,” said Fraction.
