Young Harris College to host modified Fall Fest Thursday

By Regan Spinks, AccessWDUN staff

Young Harris College will host a modified, socially distanced version of their annual Fall Fest on Thursday, Oct. 29 from 5-7 p.m.

Families will drive slowly along a designated route on the Young Harris campus while faculty, students and staff distribute candy to each vehicle. Participants will enter at Mayor’s Park, turn right by Maxwell Center, drive past the YHC pillars on the plaza and exit between Goolsby Center and Sharp Memorial United Methodist Church.

Due to COVID-19, all occupants of vehicles will be required to wear cloth face coverings, remain in their vehicles and stay on the designated route. Trick-or-treaters must hang a bag outside the car window to collect their candy.

The event is free to the public, but donations of non-perishable items for a local food pantry will be collected. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes and decorate their vehicles in a Halloween theme.

“Fall Fest has always been a wonderful and cherished time for the College and our surrounding communities,” said Young Harris College Director of Student Involvement and the Rollins Campus Center Eugene Burton. “The ongoing pandemic has not dulled our spirits but allowed us an opportunity to embrace the creative nature that exists within YHC. We are excited to host this reverse parade and celebrate the fall season with our community. Please remember to wear your mask!”
