FULTON, NY – Catholic Charities of Oswego County invites families to join them for their first ever Family Fall Festival. On Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Catholic Charities will open the doors of its newly remodeled CYO center and welcome families for a fall festival.
Children of all ages may participate in a variety of fall themed games and activities including: pumpkin bowling, pumpkin ring toss, a bounce house, and plenty of arts & crafts projects. Refreshments such as apple cider, donuts and popcorn will also be available.
“Our Fall Festival will be a fun event that families can enjoy together,” said Mary-Margaret Pezzella-Pekow, executive director of the Catholic Charities of Oswego County. “It also serves as a opportunity for children and their families to tour our CYO center and learn about the many programs and activities that CYO has to offer the youth of our community.”
In addition to the games and activities there will be a bag auction and those in attendance may purchase tickets for a chance to win two drawings – one for a 26” VIZIO LCD / HD/TV with Wii Game Console with sports games and one that includes four one-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World in Orlando and one pair of Coach Certificates on AirTran Airways.
While there is no cost to attend Catholic Charities’ Family Fall Festival there will be nominal charge for activities and refreshments. “We would like to see as many families as possible at our Fall Festival and discovering everything that our CYO center has to offer. Games and activities are priced at just twenty-five cents so that children will be able to have plenty of fun. All proceeds will be used for our CYO program and our food pantry. Families are also welcome to bring food donations for our pantry if they like,” said Pezzella-Pekow.
