The YMCA of Southwestern Indiana will hold its annual Fall Harvest event this Saturday, October 29th from 6:00 - 8:00PM at the Dunigan Family YMCA on Oak Grove Road.  The community event, in its 7th year, celebrates the change of season with family-friendly activities for kids ages 12 and under.

This family fun event includes outdoor activities like hayrides, trunk-or-treating, and costume photo opportunities as well as indoor activities like face painting, pumpkin decorating, inflatable slides, bounce houses, obstacle courses, and carnival-style games as well as concessions.

The event is free to YMCA members and only $3 per person or $10 per family for non-members.  Registration is recommended for the event by this Friday, October 28th.  The public can register by calling 812-401-9622 or by emailing

This annual event garnered over 630 participants last year, 350 of which were children.  Alex Strohm, who spearheads the event, says, "Fall Harvest is an opportunity for the Y to put its mission into action and serve all of those in our community in a safe, family-friendly environment. It's our way of bringing different people and families together to interact and have fun during the fall season."
