Lots of children of all ages will enjoy a fun and safe evening of Halloween fun while attending Holy Halloween at First United Methodist Church on JFK Boulevard in North Little Rock, from 5- 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 30.

Special activities and carnival games include mazes, a pie throwing booth, bingo for baked goods, bean bag toss, face painting, a photo booth, and, of course, trunk-or-treating! Children and adults are invited to enjoy the event while dressed in their Halloween costumes. Also, a concession stand will be available.

"What we hope to provide to the Indian Hills and surrounding communities is a fun and safe alternative to Halloween that can reduce the fear associated with the holiday," says Donna Hendricks, Minister of Children and Families at First United Methodist Church. "We don’t always think about Halloween being associated with the Christian church. However, [Halloween] does have origins connected to the Christian holiday, ‘All Hallow’s Eve.’"
