Under clear blue skies Governors Village families gathered at the Park playground on Saturday, October 24, 2015 for the annual autumn BooFest.

Crowds formed early as the Kid’s Games and Crafts got underway.

The Goathouse Refuge table featured an assortment of animal mugs and other handcrafted pieces by Italian artist Siglinda Scarpa. Proceeds from purchases of these items go to the care of animals.

Thanks to key organizer Linda Kreiter for overseeing this event. Led by Linda, many Social Committee members and other volunteers staged a fun-filled afternoon of activities that brought smiles and shrieks of joy to the neighborhood.

Family Campout

By afternoon colorful tents started appearing in Meadow Park in preparation for the traditional, post-BooFest family campout. This year the Governors Village YMCA Princesses Waco Tribe hosted the overnight event.

Non-camping neighbors joined the camping families around a fire to enjoy hot chocolate, marshmallows, smores and music. Fresh coffee and hot chocolate were served around the fire pit in the morning as the sun colored the rosy sky. Thanks to Scott Leslie for coordinating the campout.
