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 2016 Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, September 24. Festivities will begin with the "Big Parade" at 10:30 a.m. and activities will last until around 3pm.
Features will include inflatable games, Leon Pinkert with his horse-drawn carriages, a barbeque meal (lovingly served-up by Gus and Phyllis Menendez), our children's parade (hayride, carriage, train, tractor, bicycles, floats, fire engine and other interesting vehicles), a wonderful silent auction and bake sale.
Last year we had Rick & Suzanne Ward's Olde-Time Popcorn Truck in our parade and giving out goodies all day. Also...
R2-D2, some Jedi Knights, and other Star Wars characters could be found around campus.
Live entertainment provided by: Lone Prairie
Children always enjoy the rides and inflatable games...and the parade is, as 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!
