Long County residents are getting into the fall spirit with a cornucopia of autumn-themed activities.
Walker Middle School had its annual fall festival Thursday. Organizers said this year’s event, which featured several new activities for children, drew a bigger crowd than in the past.
Attendees participated in a cake walk, bean bag tosses and basketball shoots. Children got their faces painted, and festival-goers of all ages enjoyed the fishing pond and hayrides. In addition to the old favorites, new activities included a rock-climbing wall, an obstacle course and a fingernail-painting booth.
Walker Middle School Assistant Principal Sean Peek said the festival is designed to give children and community residents a fun night at the school while raising funds for different grades.
Elim Baptist Church had its “trunk-or-treat” event Saturday. Children and their families gathered to receive treats and take part in Christian-themed activities. Volunteers of all ages drove their vehicles to the church, decorated their trunks to match the 1960s and 1970s theme and distributed candy to “trunk-or-treaters.”
