Taking a jab at fun

Christian Church in the Wildwood's Fall Kickoff was designed with families in mind. "We tried to invite the whole community," said church staff member Nate Graham. In the jousting event, participants stood on a flat perch above an inflated air cushion and tried to knock each other off with what looked like giant Q-Tips. The kickoff also included a dunk tank, moon walk, obstacle course, giant slide and food.
