Every year churches in the area host their individual festivals. These festivals serve as a great fundraising event as well as a way for members of the community to come together and interact with each other. With the Merchant’s and Music Festival still fresh in our rearview mirror it is definitely festival season in Fort Thomas. Christ Church, United Church of Christ is getting in on the action as they plan to host their first ever festival this Saturday, October 5.
The primary goals for the church are like any other festival. They want to raise money for the church as well as encourage people to check out what the church has to offer. The festival provides the perfect opportunity for the community and members of the church to enjoy a casual fall night together.
The festival will include a cakewalk, games of chance, an auction, a raffle for a 55-inch television, great food, cold beer, children’s games including a giant blow up castle, and live music featuring the band, Josh McIntosh and Company!
I spoke to a representative for the church and he explained how much work has gone into the festival. Members of the church from many different committees have planned and brought to fruition an exciting night for the city to enjoy. The church is very excited to host their first festival and is hoping that the city will come out to take part in the event.
