Harvest Fest will take place Wednesday, Oct. 25th, at Williams Baptist University. The annual event is a popular festival for local children and church groups, with Williams students operating the games and activities. There will also be a costume contest for different age categories.
Harvest Fest will be in WBU’s Southerland-Mabee Center from 6:00 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. Children are asked to have their cans counted before they arrive to speed up the entry process.
Canned goods will go to the food pantry at Walnut Ridge First Baptist Church, while cash proceeds will go toward WBU student missions.
Williams is a Christian liberal arts college in Walnut Ridge. It will become Williams Baptist University in July.
