Well, Halloween "Candy Fest" at the Baptist church was a waste of time. It wasn't that it was a meager event -- it was too large of one! They had booths set up like any festival -- hoop toss, dart toss, clothes pin drop, etc. -- and you won candy at each booth. The problem was that the people to booth ratio was horribly skewed. There were lines everywhere. I conservatively estimate that there were 2,500 people there.
Another problem was they started at 6 p.m. The end at 9 p.m. What's the problem? Ah, here's the rub. At 7:30 p.m., they stop all the booths and jumpolines and food concessions and free thought (er, um maybe) to preach at everyone for half an hour. We got there about 6:30 p.m. and I was planning to leave no later than 8 p.m. So, we basically got an hour of fun in ... about half of which was eaten up waiting to slide down some silly freaking blow up slide.
If you share a nearby zipcode, stay away from Sherwood Baptist's Candy Fest.
