Sherwood's Candy Fest date changed

Sherwood Baptist Church is holding its annual Candy Fest two days early this year.

Usually the family-friendly event is on Halloween, but organizer David Joiner says since the holiday falls on a Friday this year it conflicts with many high school football games. Joiner says he doesn't want families to have to choose only one. Kids will be able to play games, go on hayrides, and meet some cast members from the Albany-based movie "Fireproof".

Candy Fest is from 6:00 to 9:00 Wednesday night. Admission is a bag of candy.
