YMCA hosts Family Halloween party

The Kishwaukee Family YMCA invites the community to an evening of family fun and games at its annual Family Halloween Event from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center.

Children and parents are encouraged to wear costumes and play together. The event will offer an array of fun, silly and active games with prizes. The ever-popular haunted house and fear factor room will be open to those looking for a good Halloween scare. The event also will feature sports games, multiple bounce houses, arts and crafts, and magic shows featuring James the Magician.

Tickets for the event cost $2 per person. A limited number of tickets are available; puck them up early at Kishwaukee Family YMCA or DeKalb Barb City YMCA. Children age 2 and younger will not need a ticket to enter the event.

Children should bring socks to enter the bounce house.
