Kick up your heels when Vernon’s Community Baptist Church holds its second annual Hootenanny Saturday, Sept. 10 from 3 to 8 p.m.

Named after the Appalachian colloquialism, or word for party, the Hootenanny will be a fun day for the whole family.

There will be horseback rides for children, plus a petting zoo and crafts. George, a baby donkey, may also be there, say organizers.

For adults there is a volleyball game, horseshoes, and bean bag toss.

Vittles, which include a choice of hamburger, hot dog, or veggie burger, plus corn on the cob, watermelon and a beverage, will be served at 5:30 p.m.

At 6:30 p.m., everyone can venture inside for the Hootenanny show.

There will be a campfire sing-a-long, line dance lesson and a hoedown lesson for all. A skit and music is also included in the ticket price. There will also be a silent auction and door prizes.

Tickets for the Hootenanny can be reserved in advance at  Community Baptist Church, located at 4911 Silver Star Rd., or call 250-542-4028. Cost is $10 per person or $15 for a family.
