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 2015 Fall Festival was held on Saturday, September 19. Festivities began with the Parade at 10:30 a.m. and activities lasted until around 3pm.
Features included inflatable games, and Leon Pinkert and his horse-drawn carriages were back this year. There was 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. In addition, this 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 was provided by: Lone Prairie
Children enjoyed the rides and inflatable games...and the parade was, as always, a BIG hit...this year featuring floats designed by our cottages in addition to the Roosevelt Eagle Marching Band! Adults especially enjoyed the silent auction benefiting the Home.
One of the highlights of the day was the auctioning of several home-made pies, made with delicious 'children's home' pecans. Mmmm, those pies are good!
