Residents of Aliso Viejo came to Compass Bible Church’s annual Fall Fest for a fun, festive and safe place to celebrate Halloween with their children.
For the first time in its eight-year history, the event, which has grown attendance into the thousands, came home to the church’s campus in Aliso Viejo.
More than 850 volunteers of Compass Bible Church stepped up to handle security, manage parking, work the game booths, cook food and hand out candy. The children who attended received the 2 tons of candy the church has been collecting over the past month.
“We were so excited this year at the thought of bringing this event back home to our church campus,” said Mike Fabarez, senior pastor of Compass Bible Church. “The support we received from the City of Aliso Viejo, the Sheriff’s Department, OCFA and our adjacent neighbors allowing us to use their parking facilities was tremendous.”
