It Was a Zoo at Bethel Chapel’s Open House on Saturday!

Bethel Chapel Church at K & Lycoming Streets in Juniata Park never disappoints with their annual Open House and Free Neighborhood Block Party! The church was blessed with fabulous weather on Saturday for families to come out and enjoy snacks, fun, and something new this year — a Petting Zoo!

In past years, Bethel Chapel has had ponies on site to give the children rides on, but this year, the church yard was full of animals that the children could get up-close with.

The COVID-19 pandemic made it necessary to take precautions, making it the first socially distant Block Party for the church, with masks necessary when being around those outside of your household.

Block Party attendees got to go home with Take-Home Snack Bags, a new feature in this age of coronavirus.

Thanks to Bethel Chapel Church for giving the neighborhood this exciting free event for all to enjoy each year!
