Harvest Fest will take place Wednesday, Oct. 30th, at Williams Baptist College. The annual event is a popular festival for local children and church groups, with Williams students operating the games and activities.
Harvest Fest is held in WBCâ€™s Carter Field House from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. Admission is free, and tickets for games and activities can be purchased at the door with money or with a donation of canned goods.
Participants will receive four tickets per canned food item, or they can purchase four tickets for $1, according to Kathy Evans, student activities director at Williams. Children are asked to have their cans counted before they arrive to speed up the entry process.
Canned goods will go to the Walnut Ridge First Baptist Church Food Bank, while cash proceeds will go toward mission trips for Williams students.
The festival will also feature a costume contest. A $20 gift card will be given to the winner of the childrenâ€™s category, $25 in cash will be given to the winner of the individual adultâ€™s category and $50 in cash will be given to the winners of the group adultâ€™s category.
The event will be held in WBCâ€™s Carter Field House.
