Fall festival in Niles starts 2014 Relay for Life season

NILES, Ohio (WKBN)– Niles officially kicked off its 2014 Relay for Life season on Saturday.

Volunteers held a Fall Festival in Stevens Park, hoping to get a jump on its fundraising efforts. Vendors were on hand selling arts and crafts and there was even a Kid Zone for the little ones to paint pumpkins.

The goal for the next Relay for Life in Niles is $60,000, a goal that will take months to reach.

“The Relay runs for more than just the actual weekend that the Relay exists, so the new season for the 2014 Relay started at the beginning of September. So, we are doing all of our fundraising to meet our goal when hit the Relay on May 2 and 3,” said Denise Seman, Co-Chair, Relay for Life, Niles.

To raise even more money, the Relay team will hold a Octoberfest next weekend from 5 to 10 p.m. in downtown Niles.
