The second annual West Jasper Day will be held this Saturday, Oct. 13, beginning at 7:30 a.m. in Maranatha Baptist Church’s parking lot.

Tables selling crafts, food and jewelry will be set up in the lot and there will be hourly drawings for door prizes all day. Chances for the drawing are available for a $1 donation. Items to be given away include cookie baskets, free dinners, car washes, oil changes and a DVD player.

The proceeds will benefit West Jasper Elementary School. Organizers are still accepting applications for tables, for a fee of $5 each.

At 10:30 a.m., Jack Baldwin, of the First Christian Church in Jasper, will present a magic/illusionist show, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., there will be a clown, train and face painting for the kids, from 1 to 1:30 p.m. there will be a Zumbatomics exercise class for kids and Home Depot will be on site to help the kids with craft projects.

There will also be entertainment for adults, including musical performances by the Thompson Family, Maranatha’s youth, Jeff Parnell, Skip Cochran and Kim Dunn.

Last year the event attracted more than 200 attendees and raised over $200 for West Jasper Elementary School.

“We’re just looking forward to it,” Maranatha Baptist’s pastor Jerry Boyd said. “We had a great year last year and we’re looking forward to another one this year.”

The event is free to the public and will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Barker Street, from Josephine Street to Gray Avenue, will be closed for the event.
