Bring the whole family out to The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club’s Fall Festival from 5 to 8 p.m. TONIGHT at the Club, 2808 SE 44th St.

Besides free food, live entertainment, game booths and tons of candy for the kiddos, the entire event is free to the public. Knowledge, our youth director for the club, has Christian and inspirational rappers on the slate for tonight as well to spread their positive messages.

The games include the usual, like football tosses and Plinko, but we’ll have some unique little games, like a toilet paper toss and others. We’d like to give a special shout-out to the Adult Rehabilitation Center guys for hand-making all the games for tonight’s event.

Again, this event is free and open to the public. Not only is it a fun festival for kids of all ages, it’s also a very safe place for the family to celebrate this fall holiday.

“We’ve become a place in this community where everyone knows they can come for a safe and fun time,” said Captain Michael Knott of The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command. “We’ve grown so much. We have over 100 kids who come to us after school and during our special camps, and kids just walk in now knowing that this is a safe place to come.”

The Boys & Girls Club offers after-school programs like homework assistance, crafts, dance classes, sports and more every day after school at its location at SE 44th and Bryant. In addition, any child under 18 years old can come to the club for a hot meal at 5:30 every day.
