Residents from Lorain as well as other cities flocked to the downtown district to celebrate Fall Fun Day which offered several fun-filled activities for those of all ages Oct. 8.

The festivities kicked off with the Monster Mash Dash which kicked off a costume run or walk at 9 a.m.

At Broadway Mary’s, a pumpkin sale was offered by an Episcopal Church and its subgroup, Solidarity Urban Farms.

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, located at 647 Reid Ave., “is an inclusive worshipping community empowered by the spirit to be Christ’s hands in our neighborhood and the world. You are welcome regardless of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, economic condition, physical or mental ability in an atmosphere of trust and gracious acceptance of one another,” the church’s website stated.

Father Alex Barton, priest of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, was at the pumpkin sale along with members of the farm.

Jim Goforth, who heads up the farm under direction of the church, was also on hand to meet and greet residents as well as to educate them about the farm that supplied the pumpkins for sale.

Amy Melena, in charge of the farm operations involving flowers, pumpkins and more, also attended the event to promote the urban farm located in Lorain.

The approximate .25-acre plot is used to grow all seasonal vegetables as well as a plethora of pumpkins and flowers, she said.

Kayla Howard and JP Vincent, of Elyria, brought Kayla’s four-year-old daughter, Isabelle Howard, donned in her Halloween costume to the Rising Titan’s Trunk or Treat event at the Black River Landing just a few blocks away.

“We do a lot here. We like attending Lorain’s events,” JP Vincent said.

Kayla Howard grew up in Lorain and said she is always happy to come home to enjoy the events.

Hundreds of other residents, dressed in Halloween costumes waited in long lines to visit each of the trunks that offered candy and treats.

Later in the afternoon residents were invited to a “Hocus Pocus” event at the main library as part of the event-filled day.
