Saturday October 18th we held our annual Fall Festival from 12 to 3pm. We gave away 125 pumpkins in our pumpkin patch, to any child that could find their little orange treasure, under the straw. Soft pretzels, and popcorn kept everyone full while they played the games developed by our own SMA (seasonal maintenance assistant).
We had a cardboard castle for the little ones to play in, and picture taking through the rose windows. Parents were grateful for something fun and free in their neighborhood for their families to enjoy, and we, the Friends of Overington Park (FOOP) were pleased to have so many good people attend our event.Special thanks to the Frankford High School’s JR ROTC. We would be lost without them!
There was a art station for printing a Fall bookmark or card to take home. We gave away plants started by our FOOP vice president to any gardeners that attended. At the end of the event small bags of candy and toys, (150) were given to each child attending the Festival. All in all the day was a big success!
