Easter Fest with a Little Extra Excitement

The Waters Church’s Annual Easter Fest had fun and surprises for Katy families

We attended the 2nd Annual Easter Fest event last night at a local church, The Waters Church, located on 2710 North Mason Road #145 in Katy.  We arrived slightly early since my children are young and would need to head home to sleep before the event was over.

When we arrived, everything was being set up: no less than 4 bouncy houses, a pony ride, a balloon artist, a petting zoo, popcorn, hot dogs, and 2 brand new 2010 fire engines (one with a ladder)!  Chuck E. Cheese was there as well, and for the lucky early birds, he had cotton candy that he was handing out.  Within the first 30 minutes, we had already enjoyed our hot dog dinner, 2 of the jump houses, and were waiting for a turn on the pony rides.  After watching my 3 ½ year old ride a pony and marveling at how big she is getting, we headed to the balloon artist for our own personal Easter Fest tradition: a pink and purple butterfly balloon.  My daughters were in carnival heaven!

One exciting element that I am certain the church will not want to add to their annual tradition of Easter Fest is their Lead Pastor’s trip to the ER.  Apparently, right before the festival began, Lead Pastor Clint Paschall was doing tricks on his skate board and fell pretty hard on his arm.  He didn’t seem to show much evidence of being in pain throughout the first hour or so of the festival.  He was on the microphone and chatting with people as if everything was fine, but apparently he was in a good deal of pain.  At some point in the evening, he headed to the hospital, and, as it turns out, has a broken arm. 

Even without the lead pastor, the festival was a lot of fun and seemed to be a great success.  We plan on being back again next year for our annual pink-and-purple butterfly balloon and jumping house fun.

What about you?  Were you able to make it out to Easter Fest?  If not, what Easter activities have you enjoyed or are you looking forward to?
