Grace College will host its 31st annual FunFest Friday, Oct. 29, from 6 – 8 p.m. in the Gordon Health and Wellness Center, 100 Publishers Dr., Winona Lake. FunFest is free and open to all children and their families. This year’s theme is carnival. Children are invited to dress-up in the carnival theme or in the costume of their choosing.
“This year, kids will earn tickets at a variety of booths that they can turn in for prizes, including allergen-friendly candies,” said Kearstin Criswell, director of student involvement at Grace College.
“I am looking forward to being able to connect with the community after having to take a year off from this event due to Covid,” said Melissa Mucci, a second-year student leading the event. “I believe this will be a fun event for both the children and the volunteers. We’ve got some really exciting activities and prizes in store for those who attend!”
At FunFest, 60 Grace College student volunteers will provide entertainment including carnival-themed games and face painting. FunFest has been a tradition on Grace’s campus for 31 years. It is coordinated by SERVE – the student-led ministry club at Grace.
“Funfest is a longstanding tradition of Grace College,” said Criswell. “It is a great opportunity for our students to practice hospitality and create memorable activities for the community!”
