Do you like pie?
How about cool cars?
Or carnival-style games like the ring toss?
If so, then area church is planning an activity you may want to attend.
This is the fifth year that Arlington Community Church will have its fall festival. Proceeds from the event, which includes a pie garden, arts and crafts fair and children’s games, benefit church youth and outreach programs.
Activities begin at 10 a.m. Sunday with a community worship service at Arlington City Park.
The Rev. John Hogue, pastor, will provide the sermon. Special music is planned.
Registration for the car show is set from 10 a.m. to noon. Billed as “The Last Show ’Til Snow,” the event will have class trophies and special awards. Classes are: original, modified and special. The car show, sponsored by Arlington-area businesses, will take place from noon to 4 p.m.
An arts and crafts fair is set from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event has proven popular in past years.
“It’s well received in the community,” said Kathy Cahill, church office manager.
Children’s games, including a ring toss, are planned from noon to 3 p.m.
The festival also will feature a pie garden in the auditorium’s community room. Visitors can purchase pieces of homemade pie. Pie a la mode with a drink costs $4. A piece of pie is $3. If any pies are leftover at the end of the day, they will be available for purchase for $13 each. Pies include: apple, apple crumb, pumpkin, peach, cherry and strawberry rhubarb.
Cahill invites area residents to attend the festival.
“It’s something that draws the community together and provides a way to earn funds to help in lots of different areas where people need things,” she said.
