Family Fall Fest is set for Saturday, Oct. 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We are hoping for a sweet time of fellowship with families from all of our Southeast campuses to come together and have fun with each other and hopefully get to meet some new families that they haven’t met before,” said Catherine Fereday, Blankenbaker Campus SE!KIDS Ministry leader. “Also, to have fellowship with our SE!KIDS staff because we’re bringing our families to come and spend time with everyone that day as well.”

Activities will include the zip line, paintball, archery, pumpkin painting, wagon rides, fishing, hiking and ax throwing. There will be no swimming.

A few new features to this year’s fall event will be a scavenger hunt, a reptile show, inflatables and s’mores at a fire pit.

“We’re excited for everyone to gather together and enjoy all things fall,” Fereday added.

The cost is $25 per person and free for children 5 and under. Lunch is included, and the Snack Shack will be open. Most concession items are $1.
