Petra Fall Fest

September 27th, 2023 No comments

Join our community on October 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Petra Church’s Annual Fall Fest! Fall Fest is our biggest community event, where our church family, neighbors, and community members are invited to come out and enjoy a day of free family fun! This year, we have carnival games, crafts, face painting, campfires, inflatables, and barrel train rides. A Preschool Patch will offer games and crafts designed specifically for younger children. New this year are some competitive yard games including archery tag, spike ball, and corn hole. Fall Fest will also feature live entertainment by Ryan and Friends and a few special tents dispersed throughout the event where free haircuts will be given, prizes will be awarded, and prayer by our prayer teams will be offered. There will be lots of food including hot chocolate, whoopie pies, popcorn, and french fries. You will also be able to roast hot dogs and make s’mores over the campfires. Chick-fil-A sandwiches will be available for purchase. Everything else is free! This very special fall event has something for everyone to enjoy! We hope to see you and your family at Fall Fest!

Sorry, no dogs allowed.
