On Saturday, Oct. 24, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. and the Greek community will host the 2010 community fall festival on the front lawn of VSU from 1-4 p.m. The event will be open to all community members and children.
Boys and Girls Clubs of Valdosta will be attending the festivities. All booths are sponsored by Greek sorority and fraternity members and will be managed individually. Entertainment includes face painting, cake walks, bean bag toss, pumpkin decorating, pie throwing contests, and bounce houses.
“I feel that the festival will be a great event for kids to come out to with their Halloween costumes, and experience the fun of VSU,” said Janiece Benefield, senior special education major, and president of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
Halloween costumes are encouraged to be worn by any children attending the event. Each child will be given a paper bag to decorate, and will receive candy and toys for attending booths.
The festival will have carnival type food such as popcorn, candy and snow cones.
“It’s also a great time for Greeks on campus to expose the community service side of their organizations and to receive a donation from the outside community, plus it goes to a great cause for Greek philanthropies,” Benefield said.
The event is free, but there will be a small charge for any purchased foods and all other proceeds will go to Great Strides, a Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
