Local church hosts annual Halloween event

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Ark in the Park offered kids and their parents an alternative to the usual trick-or-treating.   

The annual event was hosted by Britt David Baptist Church. The event started 12 years ago in the by church's parking lot and has grown.

"It cost the church about $10,000. We put about $5,000 that's budgeted money towards it. We have special gifts that come in," says Pastor Tim Jones. "In fact, last night at church we said look we need a little bit more. Let's give some and there are folks that give to that."

The event also offered trick-or-treaters prizes such as TV's and home appliances, all of which were donated by local businesses.
