      Little ones were dressed up Sunday night at Gillionville Baptist Church as they held a fall festival in the field next to their church.

      Kids were dressed up as all sorts of characters from Frankenstein's monster to Disney princesses.

      There was a basketball toss, sponge throwing, darts and face painting going on.

      Associate Pastor of Children, Rodney Rector says it was a great way for kids to stay safe.

      "Of course the church provides candy, and it's just a safe environment in the field, we have lots of carnival games, we have inflatables and a hay ride. And it's just a lot of fun, perfect weather!" says Rector.

      An estimated 600 people showed up for the event held from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
