Annual Fall Festival & Barbeque
Saturday, September 22, 2018
The annual Fall Festival & Barbeque 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 to get to know students and staff.
Festivities begin with the “Big Parade” at 10:30 a.m. Again, this year TEXAS TECH’S ‘MASKED RIDER’ will ride in the parade, and our children will participate in the float contest. Enjoy live music by “LONE PRAIRIE,” inflatable games, Leon Pinkert with his horse-drawn carriages, a barbeque meal with all the fixings, the big parade (marching band, hayride, carriage, train, tractor, bicycles, motorcycles, children’s floats, fire engine and other interesting vehicles), our HUGE SILENT AUCTION, and a fantastic bake sale. Activities last until around 3 p.m.
You might get a glimpse of Jedi Knights, Star Wars Stormtroopers, Captain America, or a Disney Princess or two.
Children always enjoy the rides and inflatable games… and the BIG PARADE is always a hit, featuring floats designed by our kiddos 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! And don’t forget Martha Hoover’s cake!
We look forward to seeing you at the annual Fall Festival and Barbeque
