Community Fall Festival 

Submitted

MT. ULLA — This free community festival is cohosted by West Rowan Farm Home and Garden and West Rowan Volunteer Fire Department, beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct 28. There will be live music performed by southern gospel group Heaven’s Joy starting at 4:30 p.m.

Kids can come in their Halloween outfits for a costume contest, games, trick or treat, free hotdogs and touch a fire truck. Fire safety education will be handed out.

St. Luke’s Lutheran Church Youth will be hosting a hay ride at the event, and there will be local vendors. To participate in the pumpkin pie eating contest, call 704-278-2800 to register and reserve your pie.
