Story book characters made their way through Jackson on Saturday night to the Mississippi Children's Museum. "Once Upon A Fall Festival" brought children and their parents out for a night of fun and imagination.
More than 700 people were expected to help celebrate the end of the week long literature themed program at the museum. The fundraiser featured a number of activities for little "characters" to enjoy.
Organizers say raising money is necessary to keep educational activities at the museum.
"The ticket sales only account for about 26% of the operating costs at the museum. So, it's through fundraisers like this that it continues to provide the wonderful exhibits and the operating condition that they need to be, and continue to do the wonderful things that it does," said "Once Upon A Fall Festival" Chair Lisa Thompson.
WLBT's Barbie Bassett judged the talent show during the festival.
