Fall Festival Unites Community
Outreach ministry takes a different shape based on a community’s needs.
That’s why so many churches across the country dedicate time and resources to hosting fall festivals year after year. At The Salvation Army in El Paso, more than 500 people attended the 2023 Fall Festival, doubling the numbers from last year’s event.
This year’s Fall Festival had all the usual entertainment: food, games, bounce houses, trunk-or-treating, costumes, music, even pony rides and a train! Everything was completely free which was a big surprise for newcomers. Offering free, family-friendly events open to the community is a cornerstone of The Salvation Army’s outreach efforts in El Paso.
In fact, one of the main goals of this event was to make enjoyable and family-oriented activities accessible to all, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Those neighbors at the Fall Festival included newcomers, soldiers, church members, shelter residents, advisory board members, employees, sponsors, and volunteers.
