    cant vote (java script error), but I can respond. We have a Hallelujah Hoedown every year, but it is a typical fall festival with booths, food, fun jumper and inflatable slide, hayride, and lots of food. Its all free, well publicized, and there is a creative gospel presentation as well.

    This is the first year that we've done this. The idea was born mainly out of the fact that Halloween was a Sunday.
    Since we are in the city with no lawn or parking lot, there are no rides or other type carnival things. There will be three activities going on at the same time. Inside, in the sanctuary, there will be a youth rally type program, with music videos, a magic show, a juggler, and some praise and worship, along with a gospel message. This is for the jr and sr high youth. For the kids, in the fellowship hall, there will be activity booths that children will go back and forth to, and get a treat for doing the activity each time - ring toss, duck pond, a simple craft, pin the nose on the pumpkin, etc. Then we will gather them to watch the new Veggie Tales video on a big screen. After both things are over, there will be hot dogs and snacks in the hall for all. While this is all going on, kids who pass by outside, who don't want to come in, will be offered a treat bag with candy, tract, and info about the church.
