The Annual Fall Festival is held on the campus of The Children’s Home of Lubbock each September. In addition to being a fund-raiser, this event serves as an opportunity for our friends and supporters to enjoy our beautiful campus and get to know students and staff.
The 2017 Fall Festival will be on Saturday, September 23. Festivities began with the “Big Parade” at 10:30 a.m. and activities lasted until around 3pm. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE ‘MASKED RIDER’ IN OUR PARADE THIS YEAR!
Features include inflatable games, Leon Pinkert with his horse-drawn carriages, a barbeque meal with all the fixin’s, our children’s parade (hayride, carriage, train, tractor, bicycles, motorcycles, floats, fire engine and other interesting vehicles), a wonderful silent auction and bake sale.
Stormtroopers, some Jedi Knights, and other Star Wars characters, along with Captain America and Lady Thor, may be found around campus.
Live entertainment provided by: Lone Prairie
Children always enjoy the rides and inflatable games…and the BIG PARADE is always a BIG hit… featuring floats designed by our cottages in addition to the Roosevelt Eagle Marching Band! Adults especially enjoy the HUGE silent auction benefiting the Home.
One of the highlights of the day is the auctioning of several home-made pies, made with delicious ‘children’s home’ pecans. Mmmm, those pies are good! And don’t forget Martha Hoover’s cake!
We look forward to seeing you at the next annual Fall Festival on
