Roam the chrome: Car show benefits children’s home


102016-tbch3What was brighter—the gleam on the classic cars, or the smiles on the faces of families at a favorite charity’s 13th Annual Fall Festival in Bartlett this weekend? It’s anyone’s guess, but the event that benefits the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home Inc. (TBCH) had a beautiful fall morning for the free event.

Held annually on the campus at 6896 U.S. 70 (the corner of the highway and Stage Road), the festival showcases classic cars and motorcycles, with proud owners eager to pay entry fees and vie for honors. The festival also has family-friendly attractions like a petting zoo, face painting, moon bounces, visits from local characters and team mascots, and even a funfoto booth. Guests took part in campus tours, and free breakfasts and lunches were also available. The event lasted from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

TBCH is a ministry of the churches of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, providing residential care for more than 200 at-risk children and families statewide each year. To learn more about the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes, visit
