After a two-year break, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church is bringing back its very popular Harvest Festival & BBQ, set for Saturday, Oct. 12 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This year’s festival will be bigger and better than previous events. It will feature live onstage entertainment, a barbecue, food all day, crafters, a bake sale, carnival activities, inflatables, pony rides, a pumpkin patch and more.
The entertainment will include local dance groups, singing groups, gymnastics, cheerleading and Palm Beach Super Tae Kwon Do. Also on hand will be fire-rescue and law enforcement professionals with safety demonstrations throughout the day.
The feature of the day will be two-time Country Dance World Champions the Chili Chicks, who will be performing from noon to 12:30 p.m. and again from 1:30 to 2 p.m. In between performances, they will sign autographs and give out free Chili Chicks coloring books while supplies last. As part of their performance, they will demonstrate the art of line dancing.
There will also be some of the newest carnival games along with all-time favorites. For the younger children, ages 1 to 5, there will be pony rides, a petting zoo and other games with prizes.
