GRAVETTE -- Members of the Christian Crawlers 4x4 Club took advantage of a balmy fall day and sponsored a fall festival across the street from Can-Do Hardware Saturday afternoon. The temperature reached 63 degrees in the afternoon and the activities offered made for a pleasant outing for all ages.
The event benefited several area groups. The price of admission was canned goods for area food pantries. T-shirts were being sold, with proceeds going for scholarships for graduating seniors. Donations were also being accepted for the scholarship fund.
Craft kits were provided for the children's enjoyment and they could also test their skill at several games, including ring toss and knock 'em down. A face painter was on hand to decorate their faces and a few adults also were seen sporting face decorations, including a Razorback fan with a hog on his cheek.
Several vendors were on hand with booths offering a variety of items from tasty treats to art and craft supplies to gift items and seasonal decorations. Vendors included Henzie's Art Studio, C&K Treats and Gifts, Esther & Ruth, C&J Soap Company and Simply Sam's. Adam and Amber Holdridge brought Ali Lynn's Bubble Tea truck from Centerton and served specialty teas and lemonades.
