Saturday afternoon was literally a festive time around Cochran as three different groups held fall festivals or similar events. The Cochran Police held a “Unity in the Community Family Day” in front of the department on Second Street. Similar to the National Night Out events held in the past, it included free hot dogs, a rock wall, inflatables, and a mechanical bulldog to ride.

Officer Tracy Hernandez was at Unity in the Community Day to hand out stickers and hats to children.

Empire Pentecostal Holiness Church held their annual fall festival. They had face painting, a bungee race, bounce house, and a slide amongst other activities. Inside the fellowship hall, people could enjoy hot dogs while watching the UGA football game.

Limestone Baptist Church transformed their softball field into a festival ground for their fall festival. They had a pirates ship ride, trackless train, inflatables, bungee trampolines, as well as the opportunity to guess the amount of candy in the jar.
