YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. – Young Harris College will host its annual Fall Fest on Thursday, Oct. 25 from 6-8 p.m. The event is open to the public and promises to be a fun-filled experience for all ages. Fall Fest is sponsored by the Office of Student Involvement and will feature tables from student organizations, residence halls and athletic teams. Admission is $2 per child 18 years and younger.

The College’s main plaza will be full of Halloween games, trick-or-treating, activities and photo opportunities to capture pictures of the best Halloween costumes. There will also be a haunted house sponsored by the Campus Activities Board. The haunted house is recommended for children 11 and older.

“I’m incredibly excited for Fall Fest,” said new Director of Student Involvement Maggi Secrest. “This is my first year in the Enchanted Valley, and I’ve already heard so much about the event from staff and students. I know it’s going to be big, so I’ve been looking forward to it all semester. I believe it will be even better than previous years because we are going to have tables the whole way around the lawn.”

Carpooling is encouraged since parking is limited.
