Johnstown Christian festival slated for May 11

— Organizers of the 33rd annual Johnstown Christian School arts and crafts festival want visitors to make a day of it.

The festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 11 at the school, located at 125 Christian School Road, Hollsopple.

The day’s activities are filled with auctions, inviting food and family fun.

Breakfast will be available for early arrivals with a menu of fruit cups, fruit and yogurt parfaits and breakfast sandwiches.

The festival gets off to a fast start with a 5,000-meter race at 9 a.m., said festival chairwoman Sandra Haynes of Hooversville.

“Registration is $12 in advance at the school and $15 the day of the race.” Haynes said. “Each participant will receive a race T-shirt.”

For those not registering until the morning of the race, Haynes advises arriving by at least 8:30.

Two silent auctions will be held inside the school from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The auctions will include an array of gift certificates, hair products, signs, beauty products, hats and pet grooming supplies to name a few.

A kids’ auction at 11 a.m. will feature a vast array of toys.

“We have cars, trucks, outside chalk, water squirters, pool toys, bubbles, DVDs, games and much more,” Haynes said.

Another segment of children’s entertainment and activities will be located at Kids’ Korner.

“We will have crafts for children, a big bouncy, pony rides, dunking booth, games and a popcorn machine,” Haynes said.

All the auctions will be held in the school’s gymnasium.

The adult auction features a selection of quilts, a garden bench, three-piece patio settee, a fan back single glider, remote control Mustang car, air compressor, pictures, a tricycle, sofa table, gift certificates, gift baskets and a string trimmer.

As many as 50 vendors will set up under an arts and crafts tent.

“We also will have food available throughout the grounds and in the gym,” Haynes said.

People may choose from a wide variety of fare including ham potpie, apple dumplings, chicken barbecue, pies, cakes, chicken corn soup, chicken wraps, hamburgers, cheese sticks, haluski, walk away tacos, lemonade and ice cream.

Proceeds will benefit the school’s general budget.
