Guyton United Methodist Church kicked off its first Fall Harvest Festival on Friday night and Saturday, with more than 150 people coming out for bingo, hay rides and the corn maze.
“The Harvest Festival is really just a way for the community to get together and to bring people to Guyton to share in the history of the area,” said Debbie Cox, church parishioner and volunteer for the festival.
The fall weather couldn’t have been more beautiful Saturday afternoon, as Jordon Brown, a student at the University of West Georgia, assured her father, GUMC pastor Daryl Brown, that they should go straight instead of turn as the two worked their way through the corn maze, located a few blocks from the church. Cox could be heard screaming from somewhere within the maze, after she mistook a fallen corn stalk for a snake.
“It’s actually pretty scary at night,” said Pastor Brown.
