EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Officials with the West Side Nut Club provided more information Friday, regarding the 2020 Fall Festival.
You can watch that entire update in the video below.
During the update, they announced that they will start putting their half pot ticket booths up, beginning on Saturday.
They previously shared that news on their Facebook page.
“It’s better than nothing," says Grace Vos, an Evansville native. "But it’s still definitely not the same.”
Officials announced that they will have four ticket booth locations, including two drive-thru options.
One booth will be at the corner of 10th and Franklin, another will be at 11th and Franklin near the Franklin Street Tavern.
The two drive-up booths will be placed in the old Bristol Myers Parking lot at the corner of St. Joe Avenue and Lloyd Expressway.
Officials announced during their announcement that they will be taking COVID-19 precautions at all booths.
“Being able to at least do the half pot and a few of the live events we enjoy doing every year means a lot to us," says Jordan Raben, publicity chairman for the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.

“I’m just really excited that there’s going to be some of our traditions that we get to keep this year," says Jessica Minor, an Evansville resident. "It’s been such a crazy year, and it’s nice to have a little bit of normal, even if it doesn’t look the same as it usually does.”
Jessica Minor is the Cynthia Heights PTA President. She says this year, her staff is taking preorders for their famous “Fruit Fluff.”
“It’s $5 a pint," says Minor. "It’s delicious. We are raising money for lots of things at school, but specifically, we are trying to get new playground equipment. So we would love preorders of ‘Fruit Fluff’ to go towards that.”
“Like I said, if it benefits our community," says Vos, "go out and do it, because community is really important.”
