PumpkinFest '13 at Lakewood Baptist
GAINESVILLE - Ministers, staff and volunteers are staging PumpkinFest '13 at Lakewood Baptist Church and promise it will be bigger, better, and more fun than ever.
Each year, the church hosts its fall celebration free of charge to families in the region. Activities begin at 5:30 on Wednesday, October 30 with activity booths, inflatables, petting zoo and kid's turkey shoot, as well as an assortment of free food -- roasted corn, boiled peanuts, popcorn, cotton candy, cupcake walk and ice cream. Families may purchase an evening meal catered by The Varsity or Jack's Old South BBQ or Bucket O'Shrimp.
"The family-friendly event is greatly anticipated each year," says senior pastor Dr. Tom Smiley. "It is well organized and staffed by those who love to serve. An exciting new addition is a maze inside our new ministry center. Every year, this event is provided by the Lakewood congregation as an outreach opportunity to open our campus to the entire region."
