Family Fun at the Festival
The Fall Festival is On
We are so pleased to let you know that we will be hosting our annual Fall Festival again this year. This year’s big event happens on Halloween, Saturday, October 31st, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., in central Arlington.
Fun for Children of all Ages
Bouncy houses, outdoor carnival games, great food, hay rides, and candy for the kids will be all be part of the fun. It’s outdoors, and a great place to bring the kids on a Fall Saturday afternoon. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles have a great time too. Every part of it is “free of charge,” of course. It is a great sight to see so many children with their parents, dressed up in creative costumes, adding color, mystery, and excitement to this Fall event. Costumes are not required, of course. Just come as you are and have a great time.
Adjusted for COVID-19
Each year, we have over 2,000 children and youth who attend this great event with their families. For those of you who have been before, you will notice some changes this year, because of the season we are in: 1) Every part of this event will be outside. The carnival games which were formerly in the gym have been moved outside; 2) The crowds will be thinner, because Mission Arlington® will be bringing children from the apartment Bible studies at a different time than when the Festival is open for the general public. Additionally, masks will be required for this event.
Volunteers are needed
We need volunteers to help with every area of the festival – from staffing carnival booths, face-painters, bouncy houses, trash detail, safety patrol, and so much more. It is so much fun to volunteer at this event. Please call us at 817-277-6620 to volunteer, and ask for Heather or Jim. We’ll get you set up. This is a great event to come with family, friends, or your group. Help us spread the word.
Bags of Candy Needed
Can you help us with the much-needed candy for this event.? The children are always so excited when they receive a bag of candy at the end of this event. We need bags of individually-wrapped candy. You can bring it down to the Mission Arlington® offices anytime between now and the morning of October 31st. Thank you so much.
