From Spider-Man and Superman to power rangers and princesses, over 500 costumed children and adults flocked to the Hallelujah Festival on Tuesday evening at the Pavilion.
The annual event, hosted by the Religious Support Office, featured an inflatable bounce house, more than 15 games, arts and crafts, and enough junk food to keep youngsters energized throughout the two-hour festival.
“We’ve been going here ever since my little one has been in a car seat,” National Guard Capt. Cynthea Tossie said. “Now, he’s 4 years old. We have a lot of fun every year.”
Children feasted on all-you-can-eat cotton candy, popcorn and candy. The mini turkey and ham and cheese sandwiches may have mellowed out the hyped-up kids just a bit.
“I’m having lots of fun,” said Jaeshaun May, 9, whose mother Jenne May works at the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center.
For some parents, the Hallelujah Festival has become an annual tradition.
“This is our second year, going” said Air Force Maj. Amy Horan of Patriot Ridge who accompanied her 10-year-old son William. “It’s a safe environment. The kids love the games. It’s a win-win all around.”
