You will not want to miss it! This year’s 8th annual Carolina Bible Camp Bluegrass Festival in Mocksville, NC will feature more free activities, crafts and games for families and kids than ever before and, as usual, children under 12 are admitted free! CBC Board Member and Festival Chairman, Gregory J. Brewer says, “It’s important that the festival provide special activities for our younger guests.”
• Since CBC and AGAPE of NC are both all about serving children and their families, for the third year in a row, AGAPE will sponsor the Kids’ Activities tent -- a covered 10-by-30-foot area featuring more than a dozen free supervised activities for young people, including old- fashioned sidewalk games, upcycled creative craft projects, Bible pages, and a freestanding Kids Paint wall – all of which are popular activities!
• This year, too, there will be opportunities to play Gaga Ball and for young folks to try out musical instruments! (Psst . . . Also, the annual fundraiser auction will list a brand-new, still-in-the-box Deering Goodtime Banjo valued at more than $600! Do you have a budding bluegrasser who needs it?)
AND don’t forget how we will open the Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, September 14th. Two AGAPE of NC families – the Finchesand the Covalinskis – will kick things off that morning at 10:45 a.m.with their kids leading the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance!! These families expressed their excitement by saying, “We are honored!” and “We’d love to attend the CBC Bluegrass Festival and represent AGAPE!”
Once again, AGAPE will have a vendor tent where all day long Festival attendees will have an opportunity to get more information about AGAPE’s programs and services.
