DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - A big crowd came out for some family fun Monday night at the YMCA's annual fall festival.  It's been a tradition for more than 20 years.

Kids came dressed in their halloween costumes.  They got goodie bags and played games for prizes.  There was face painting, hay rides around the sports complex, and other activities.

Organizers say it's just good, family fun for the community.

"Just a great way to have kids come out, put on their halloween costumes.  We always do it on a Monday, so they get to wear it more than one time, the week before Halloween.  This is absolutely a safe place for the kids to come and have fun with the fall festival, get some candy, have some prizes, play some games.  And it's a good family event," said Izzie Tindall, YMCA Senior Program Director.

A member of the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office was also on hand with fingerprint kits.
