Enjoyable for all ages The May Community Center in Huffman is hosting their annual May Center Volunteer Advisory Fall Festival and Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser. This child-friendly event will have various activities for both the young in body and the young at heart. “Since Ike, everyone wants something fun to do. This will be a fun-filled day for everyone,” said Debbie Pierce, director of the May Community Center. This year’s festival will not lack entertainment. There will be a traditional hayride, Jetero Model Airplane flight exhibition and car show. The local fire department and sheriff’s office will be on the grounds displaying their trucks, and informing the parents about safety. McGruff the Crime Dog will be providing parents with free fingerprinting and Hunter the Arson Dog will be roaming the grounds. Representatives of the U.S. Army will showcase various equipment items as well as vehicles such as the Humvee. Food and drinks will be sold at concession stands, and homemade cakes and cookies will also be for sale. The Pumpkin Patch is emphatically designed for children. For a $5 fee, children will be granted unlimited admission to the Pumpkin Patch where they will have access to inflatable jumping items, a variety of games, face and hair painting, temporary tattoos, and various crafts. The $5 fee also includes the choice of a pumpkin for each child. As the children are painting their faces and picking their pumpkins, they will also be amused by the crafty tricks of The Yo Yo King. The May Community Center Festival and Pumpkin Patch will be held Oct. 25 at the May Community Center, 2100 Wolf Road in Huffman, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. With an expected turnout of 3,000 to 5,000 people, Pierce urges everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities. “The more the merrier,” she said. “Everyone will enjoy this very fun day.”
