Update 2: Fall Festival/Halloween

Our Fall Festival went wonderful! We had a huge turnout and made enough money for the the show team to get hoodies! They are thrilled! It started off with the Costume Parade.
Belle and I went as the white and black swan
Dwight and General are Mario and Luigi!
Faith was cheering on her football player Chip
Visitors enjoyed getting up close and personal time with the horses
Next we had a cake walk and raffle. I won awesome sport boots for Pilgrim!

Finally as it turned dark and our bellies were full of hot dogs and candy, we headed out for our spooky pumpkin walk. The show team kids all did a great job carving pumpkins for this, it turned out better than we ever could have imagined. As we entered the leaf covered trail through the woods, we immediately saw the yellow and orange glow radiating through the trees. All those bright pumpkin faces lit the way to the other side!
This was definitely a hit and everyone really enjoyed it. We will absolutely have to do this again next year!
While the Fall Festival was on Saturday, that meant Halloween was right around the corner on Monday. Dwight stuck with his Mario costume while Faith was determined to get to wear Mom's tiara and went as the White Swan herself. This was a bit of a last minute decision and I was sewing up until we walked out the door!
