FAIRFIELD, Ala. (WIAT) — Fall is in the air and that means it’s fall festival time all across the state. That includes one special festival that helps local girls in foster care at Grace House Ministries.
The 3rd Annual Grace House Pumpkin Festival is set for Saturday, October 15th. The fun includes a pumpkin patch and pumpkin decorating station, plus food from Saw’s Street Kitchen, Old Town Pizza, and Steel City Pops.
There will be music, fun family games, inflatables, an exotic animal show and even an appearance by the Chick-Fil-A Cow. There’s also some early trick-or-treating and a fall-themed family photobooth.
All of the proceeds from the festival go to help Grace House Ministries. The nonprofit provides a home for up to 23 girls ages 6 to 21 years old in foster care. Grace House offers family care, education and more services to break the generational cycles of poverty, social dependency and abuse.
The festival is from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Homewood Central Park. Adults are free and admission for children is $5 with the pumpkin included. To learn more about Grace House, check out their website here and for more on the event, click here.
