From local reports
Crown of Life Lutheran Church will be hosting its fourth annual "Walk With The Animals" event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the Washington County Fairgrounds.
This year's event will feature live music in addition to the usual fun games, crafts, skits, and food, all free. And the church has put together "mask kits" to allow every child the opportunity to put their own animal designs onto a mask and then take part in an animal parade to Noah's Ark. Kits will be available at the event. Call ahead to the church and stop by and pick up a kit to decorate masks ahead of time.
"It's our way of getting the community involved and excited about this great event," said Joel Vogel, pastor at Crown of Life. "The last few years we've had over 500 people attend the event and the kids had an extremely fun time with the animals, games and crafts," said Vogel. Children can customize their own animal mask and wear it in a big animal parade to the Ark. Noah will be there to lead them.
