Fall time is officially upon us and to celebrate the season, families are invited to attend Saturday’s Community Howl-oween Fall Fest at the Starke County Justice Center.
From 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on October 13th, the Starke County Sheriff’s Department and the F.A.R.M Program are hosting a fun, outdoor event in the west parking lot of the facility with a variety of activities scheduled.
Feel free to don your Halloween costume a little early as a costume judging contest will be held around 11 a.m. The top three costumes will be awarded a prize.
There will also be hayrides into the pumpkin patch and kids have a chance to choose between a couple of wooden Halloween themed cutouts to draw and paint on.
Warden Phil Cherry said that kids 12 and under will receive a free goody bag and will be able to have a hot dog, popcorn and a drink for free. Anyone over 12 can get those items for a minimal charge. They will also have chili available.
F.A.R.M artists will have some holiday and seasonal decorations for sale, including ones with Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas designs. All proceeds raised go back into the Justice Center’s Therapeutic Community programs.
