Celebrate unity at free event


Local non-profit group Humans United for Equality invites the community to the Fifth annual Celebration of Unity. This free event will be 4-8 p.m. Saturday at Pike Place in downtown Crawfordsville.

This family-friendly event will be an opportunity for community members to learn more about one another and to celebrate how diverse Montgomery County is.

There will be many children’s activities, such as balloon animals, multicultural games, crafts, a pinata and bounce houses. Various local organizations will be present, including the Youth Service Bureau, the Carnegie Museum and Recovery Coalition, along with about a dozen other booths.

All games, crafts, entertainment and activities will be free of charge. Complimentary grilled hot dogs will be provided by Hoosier Heartland State Bank and free popcorn will be provided by the
Montgomery County Probation Department.

Enjoy performances by the Crawfordsville Choirs under the direction of Jenny Swick and the Dance By Deborah performance dance troupe.

Food will also be available for purchase from Wokeamole, 1832 Brew, Jesus Kettle Corn and Hoosier Ice Queen.
