Octoberfest features games, crafts, prizes, and, of course, candy for children of all ages to enjoy.  Gardner-Webb students, faculty and staff also dress in costumes and sponsor family-friendly booths with a variety of activities.  Community members are encouraged to wear creative costumes, leave their inhibitions at the door, and enjoy a celebration of the fall season together with the Gardner-Webb family.
