Saturday, Nov. 5, at noon an old-fashioned fun filled time can be had by all at this year’s Harvest Festival at Hafen Park.
The Lighthouse Youth Group of Living Waters Fellowship is honored to present this event to the city of Mesquite. Funds raised through the games and other sources will go to benefit youth in our community.
“We see this event as an outreach into and for our community,” said Heidi Garcia, one of the event’s coordinator.
“Our vision is to teach our youth about working, serving, giving back, and making a difference in our community, and it’s exciting to see that vision take shape.
“It’s all about getting together as a community and sharing with one another. We have games that youth and children love to play along with things that will interest every age group.”
Many of the games were built by the youth and their parents, and are quite unique like the Toilet Paper Toss, Pumpkin Bowling, Pumpkin and Scarecrow Ring Toss, and Corn on the Cob Lollipop Grab. They’ll also have the some more traditional games.
There will be plenty of prizes.
Four bounce houses will be on sight to keep the little ones active and amused.
“We have a youth group that wanted to do something different, something that’s fun for everyone, especially the kids,” Garcia said.
There will also be plenty of food for both young and the old. The Lighthouse Youth group will be serving hotdogs, carne asada tacos, nachos, drinks, cotton candy, popcorn, pickle on a stick, and more.
“This year it’s going to be great and I hope a lot of people come and enjoy themselves and that this grows into an annual event for our community,” said Garcia.
The Harvest Festival will start following the Veteran’s Day Parade at noon and will be open until 5 p.m. It will be held at Hafen Park.
