The Oak Mountain High School baseball team will be among the various community volunteers, and guests can enjoy taking advantage of a pumpkin patch and hay ride.

The event will also feature performances by the Blue Bird Choir and the OMES Little League cheer squad.

A variety of treats and healthy snacks will be available for purchase in addition to a special $7 Chik‐fil‐A lunch combo. Steel City Pops and Kona Ice will be on hand for tasty frozen treats.

Local vendors will be on site selling crafts and other items, and a local animal organization will offer pet adoptions.
