Great Parish Hayride!

The 2014 Sacred Heart Parish Hayride drew a crowd Oct. 19 at the Phillips house.

The youth group hosted the event and featured face painting, games and a hay ride.

Children were given tickets to use at the games where they could win small prizes or candy. Snacks and drinks were also provided.

The hayride took participants on a nice, long ride to enjoy the fall Ohio scenery on a beautiful day. The ride ended up at a “pumpkin patch,” where children could pick out their own pumpkin and then paint it.

Children also got a chance to pet a turtle at the event.

Thank yous go out to the youth group and the Phillips for putting on this fun, family event!
