With perfect weather, the Fall festival season had a great kick-off on Sunday, Sept. 30 featuring: AvonDALE Ale Trail; Candler Park Fall Festival; Oakhurst BBQ & Bands Festival; and Avondale’s Southern Surf StompFest. Lots of music was on tap to raise money for the neighborhood associations and a charity.
Just down the road from the Avondale Estates Town Green, strollers hit the AvonDALE Ale Trail featuring three local breweries: Little Cottage Brewery, The Lost Druid Brewery, and Wild Heaven Beer. The breweries donated $1 for every full pour to raise money for research to find a cure for Huntington’s Disease. The fundraiser is ongoing.
Huntington’s Disease is a rare neurological disorder that is described as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s simultaneously. The “Dale Ale Trail” event was able to raise money for Huntington’s Disease Society of America, a 501c3 nonprofit, to find a cure and to provide support to those impacted by the disease.
