Immanuel Baptist Church became a center of trick-or-treating and costumed fun on Halloween while hosting its annual Harvest Festival.
The free festival was created to give the community a fun and safe place to gather for candy, games and music.
This year’s event saw several changes including moving the event to the campus’ sports fields. While, according to Pastor Rob Zinn, this change was made for security and safety reasons guests appreciated the larger lawn over the dirt field used for past festivals.
Each year the church members donate 12,000 to 15,000 pounds of candy to the event in about five weeks, Zinn said.
