LAGRANGE – If you're looking for something the family can enjoy together, the LaGrange County Department of Child Services has just the thing.
Their first Family Fun Day takes place from 11 to 4 today at Lakeland Middle School.
Justin VanKoevering says the idea is to give families an activity to do together.
"At least the Department's original idea was to give children and families something to go and do together, to spend time together. That's monumentally important. Other groups and members of the community have shown great interest and been of great support to help this become what I'm hoping will be a really fun event that we'll do every year in the future."
The event is free to everyone and includes plenty of games to keep kids engaged.
"We're gonna have lawn bowling and a life-size jenga set. There's going to be balloons, and kind of like a cake walk but with toys for gifts. There's going to be a bean bag toss and football toss and we've even managed to have a bounce house brought out and set up."
A barbecue chicken lunch will be served on a first-come first-served basis from noon to 1:30.
