This year’s Mar Vista Community Fall Festival focusing on healthy living will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16 at the Mar Vista Recreation Center, 11430 Woodbine Ave.

Returning to Mar Vista for the 12th year, the festival features children’s activities, live stage entertainment, demonstrations of various sports, slides and bouncers, an art show, games, arts and crafts, a silent auction, face painting and other activities.

Festival organizers say there will be a wide variety of groups offering suggestions for healthy living, from acupuncture to fitness training. In addition, there will be demonstrations of recreational activities offered at Mar Vista Park such as yoga, hockey, soccer and table tennis.

The park’s auditorium will also feature a community art show. Artists from local elementary, middle and high schools have been invited to participate.
