Fall Brings Pumpkin Patch, Fall Festivals

Fall Brings Pumpkin Patch, Fall Festivals

CENTRAL — Now that fall is in the air, the people of Central are once again preparing for Fall Festivals, which take the place of Halloween for most Central families.  During the week leading up to Halloween, churches in Central are busy preparing major events, which compete with Halloween and “Trick or Treating.”  Thousands of Central families attend Fall Festivals at more than a dozen churches in the Central area.

At Fall Festivals, there are rides, contests, prizes, and lots of food and drink.  Halloween can hardly compete.

The annual Pumpkin Patch is already underway at Blackwater Methodist Church, and churches are beginning to announce their Fall Festival schedules.
