Photos: Trick-or-Treaters Explore Pumpkin Patch At Church Harvest


Trinity United Methodist Church hosted its annual fall festival “The Great Pumpkin Harvest” on Sunday, October 25.

The church’s youth ministry team, the Trinity Yoots, hosted the event.

“I’ve worked this event every year for the past four years now and I love seeing all the kiddos dressed up and having fun,” said Kristin Ebbeling, an intern with the ministry.

Although the event is focused on kids, it attracted people of all ages.

Ken Crosby, an event volunteer, said this event is a great community outreach.

This year’s harvest included a “Trunk-N-Treat” set up for trick-or-treaters, where parents could decorate their car trunks for Halloween and have kids walk up and ask for candy.

The trunk decorations ranged from princesses to Star Wars and several other themes.

Jack Fugate used an alligator hide to decorate his car.

“The reactions I get are the best part, it has just enough scariness but not too bad because it is a kids event. I think the dads like it more than the kids,” Fugate said.

The festival gave youth a taste of fall fun to kick off the holiday season.
