Each year, Compass Bible Church hosts a free, annual Halloween-alternative event called “FALL FEST.” This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, October 31 at the Verizon Amphitheater in Irvine from 5–9pm. Each year, thousands of OC residents and families enjoy this free community event sponsored by the Aliso Viejo-based church.
Yes, the event does have candy, and lots of it. And although candy (and fast food) are far from nourishing, there is something truly nourishing that I know every family will benefit from – lots of family FUN!
That’s because Fall Fest features more than 50 rides and attractions, with age-appropriate games and rides for children set-up in two separate areas – one for younger children and the other for elementary-age students. The area for young children features pony rides, face painting, bounce houses and game booths, while the older game section features a giant slide, rock climbing wall, laser tag, ferris wheel, and more! Fall Fest also features a live concert with nationally known Christian artist, Rob Biagi. For more information and directions, visit http://www.ocfallfest.com.
So for all of you whole food purists out there like me, simply dine at home, and then head on over to Fall Fest for a ton of family FUN! It’s definitely a festive fall event you won’t want to miss! Hope to see you there!
Happy Fall Blessings, Kelly
