Danielville Baptist Church hosted a fall festival on Oct. 27. There were many activities for children and grownups alike.

Children enjoyed a fishpond,pick-up ducks and bobbing for apples. They were also allowed to ride a horse,which was very exciting for the smaller ones.

For the young and old, a cakewalk was particularly exciting. The main event was a hayride that circled the church area. The senior class of Highland Home High School were guest ghouls.

It was a fun event for the whole family.
