Evie Discovers Fall Festivals

Evie has finished her research on Fall Festivals and is ready to share what she found!!

Evie will be attending a Fall Festival on Halloween afternoon. Although she doesn't have any pictures to share of her adventure yet, she wanted to pass on what she found to be sure her friends would have the opportunity to attend.

Lots of churches in your city hold Fall Festivals - an event that is free to the community!! Each festival offers different food, games, and activities!

Here are some of the items that festivals in Evie's area are offering:
  • Hot Dogs
  • Hayrides
  • Moonwalks
  • Giant Slides
  • Petting Zoos
  • Rock Wall
  • Horse Rides
  • Live Music
  • Craft Vendors
  • Pumpkin Patch
  • Carnival Games
  • Costume Parade
  • Face Painting
  • Booths for kids to trick or treat
The festivals are usually held on October 31st. Some are only in the morning and afternoon, and others are held Halloween night. You may even be able to find some in your area that are held the weekend before the holiday!

So, now that you know about this fun, safe, and free Halloween event - how do you find one near you?? Evie found a few ways to find out what's offered near your house. First, you can keep a look out while you are driving around town. Most big churches offer Fall Festivals, and they will have a large sign hung out front. Another way to figure out who offers a festival is to look online. Think of all of the "big" churches in your area and look up their website. Evie found links to the Fall Festival on the church's homepage.

Enjoy your adventure!!
