WestFest offers free fun for all
Sure, pumpkin patches are fun. What kid wouldn't want to visit one this time of year? But they can also be pricey. If you are watching your wallet like I am, you might want to take your kiddos to WestFest this week. WestFest is a fall festival at TCC's West Campus that includes a free concert, free hot dogs, chips and water for the first 500 people, and free carnival games for the kids. And, costumes are welcome.
There will be a few things at WestFest that charge a fee, and proceeds go to student organizations. Veterinary Technology Student Organization will have pumpkin decorating for kids with each pumpkin costing $1; Phi Beta Lambda will hold a $1 cake walk; and there will be a Haunted Trail that costs $2.
The concert will feature Michael Boggs, a nationally known Christian music artist and songwriter. Michael is from the Berryhill area, which is near the TCC West Campus.
WestFest is 6-8 p.m. today, Oct. 24, in the Student Union on the TCC West Campus, 7505 W. 41st Street South.
