EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – People in Evansville got in the Halloween spirit with an annual Pumpkin Fest filled with fall fun.
First Presbyterian Church held their festival Sunday, handing out free food and drinks to those who came dressed in their best Halloween outfits.
They also had a pumpkin carving station and tick-or-treating.
One organizer said events like these are a great way to invite people to be a part of their church community.
“Our people really enjoy it. I think that comes through, too. I think people feel welcomed. It’s really one of the hallmarks of this church particularly, is that we are a welcoming congregation and people feel that sense of acceptance, whether they come through our doors and worship or they are out here on the street having some fun with us,” said Children and Youth Ministry Coordinator Jerusha Van Camp.
He also told us the event has grown bigger and bigger each year.
