The concept of Halloween has often been greeted with mixed emotions, but some of West Point’s citizens are hoping to change that. This year, area churches and pastors banded together to start what they hope to be an annual tradition: Harvest Fest. Harvest Fest is an alternative to Halloween. The event is from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday at Community Counseling Services gymnasium.
“We want the entire community to come to Harvest Fest,” said Minister Florence Falls Smith, one of the people who is making Harvest Fest a reality. “We want to make this an annual event and partner with all the churches in West Point and Clay County, both African-American and white, for next year. All children, young people and adults are welcome. The event is free and open to everyone from ages 1 to 100. There will be games and prizes, hay rides, inflatable jumpers, face painting, hot dogs and drinks and so much more.”
