Organizers of Heartland Church’s annual Sparks in the Fall event are hoping area residents will come out to the Callaway County Fairgrounds Saturday for an evening of family fun.
From 5:30 p.m. until dark, the church is offering up a variety of activities and entertainment ranging from games to live music at no cost to attendees.
“We just felt the community needed to come together and have something for the kids to do,” church member and volunteer Carolyn Hulett said of the decision to start hosting the event six years ago. “We have free food which attracts a lot of people, we have all kinds of things for children with lots of supervision such as a bounce house, we have laser tag for the teens and a live concert by Steve Desmond.
“It’s free food, free entertainment, a Saturday night you can get out with family and relax.”
Other features of Sparks in the Fall include an obstacle course, face painting, hay rides and door prizes as well as the traditional fireworks show.
Everyone who attends will receive three tickets for a free meal consisting of a hamburger or hot dog, soda and chips, with additional food available for purchase.
