Trunk Fest being held at Kennesaw First Baptist Church, Kennesaw, Ga., Wed. Sept. 29, 2014, 5:30 – 7:00

If you live in the Kennesaw area be sure to travel to this year’s Trunk Fest this Wednesday, the 29th, from 5:30 – 7:00.

I have been involved with preparing 3 of the Trunks, and have heard leaks of what some of the other ones are. You and your kids are sure to enjoy. Also, this year, it is a separate event from the local Halloween night. So, kids can get double enjoyment, or just limit it to Trunk Fest where you know it is safe.

See you there!

50 Ideas for Trunk Fest

It came to my attention that I only had 48 pictures, not 50. So I went on a quest for two more pictures, but found 3 I couldn’t be without. Now there are 51 ideas. Better to overdeliver, than under.

Here are some ideas for your Trunk Fest. A trunk fest is when a group of people or organization comes together to make a special grouping of treats, games, and decorated car trunks. Usually it is in conjunction with Halloween activities, or an alternative to the door to door type of trick or treat.

Maybe these ideas will help out with coming up with something for your activity. Of course, some may have a specific theme to go by, or have rules about scary things, or Satanic type things. But, please browse through these pictures below, and see what is best for you.

Callaway Gardens – Sky High Balloon Festival

Balloon glows and tethered balloon rides at Callaway Gardens.

Balloon glows and tethered balloon rides at Callaway Gardens.

Do you have labor day weekend plans? Callaway Gardens has plans for celebrating the holiday. The feature is the hot air balloon festival, with balloon glow events at night on Friday, and again on Monday. In between those times you can ride the balloons into the sky, but tethered to provide a safer ride.

That’s nice enough, but also the 2014 National Wakesurfing Championship is taking place. No, Georgia does not have an ocean beach with huge surfing waves. But, wakesurfing is very popular in many parts of the US. You can see the multi part event take place, and see who will become the new champion.

Who will be the 2014 National Wakesurfing Champion?

But like they say in the sales commercials “that’s not all”. With this festival there are plenty of activities for the whole family. A kid’s zone, dog disc demo, skydiving demo, pyrotechnik demonstration, 5K race, and triathlon will be available. Want to learn how to master night photography? There is a course you can sign up for.

All of this and more would make a memorable Labor Day weekend. For more information and admission prices, see the Callaway Gardens page which gives the schedule for the weekend.

No, this is not Bavaria, but Helen, Ga. is set up to resemble a picturesque Alpine village. Helen, Georgia, U.S.’s friendship sister city is Füssen, Bavaria, F.R.D.
The middle school students and chaperones who chose to serve on a mission trip to Helen, Georgia for a couple days the first week in June are featured in this video. The work they were doing was serving the Helen, Ga. area and supporting the work of the Georgia Mountains Resort Ministry, which is part of the Georgia Baptist Convention. Keith Ivey is the director of the resort ministry, his team and him were wonderful to work with.
