COPPERAS COVE — More than 100 Cove residents, veterans and children gathered at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8577 on Saturday for the annual Fall Festival.

The daylong event featured a morning of children’s games. After the games, kids paraded in a costume contest for boys and girls in five age categories with each winner getting a plush toy and others gifts.

Dressed in a green-and-gold Poison Ivy costume, Isbella Nelson, 5, was so happy she won that she danced around the hall. “Besides winning, my favorite part of today was the cake walk.”

Volunteers and Auxiliary members prepared eight cakes, cooked hot dogs, hamburgers and chili for lunch.

Juanita Workman, Ladies Auxiliary treasurer and co-chairwoman of the festival, said proceeds from the event will help those in need during the holidays.

“All the money we get today buys toys for children at Christmas and Thanksgiving food baskets for families, so everyone has a wonderful holiday,” said Workman.

Last year, the festival raised $700.
