FAYETTEVILLE - The Fayetteville Town Park hosts a youth celebration with churches that featured many activities for the kids.
The celebration included pony rides, food and the most popular, a petting zoo. Kids got to enjoy interacting with the animals and their peers. The idea of the celebration is to bring the local churches together to get the youth involved with the churches and their faith.
"It is sponsored by the churches and I am a member of Fayetteville United Methodist Church over behind the elementary school over on high street and we had just a good group of us from that church who came out today to help with this and we brought the dunking booth an the popcorn machine and like I say, all churches came together to make everyone have a good day today," said Mary Moses.
The event was free to attend and organizers say they plan on making the celebration an annual event.
