Children could get their face painted and paint faces on small pumpkins at Darlene and Jeri Garrett’s booth.

“We actually had had over a hundred kids come by….,” Darlene Garret said, adding that she enjoys coming to the festival in Laurel Hill.

“It’s real “tight-knit” community out here,” Garrett said.
