Join us for a spook-tacular time


Looking for a fun, family night? Then consider joining us for our annual Spooky Science program. We invite all families in the community to come out and enjoy our 6th annual Spooky Science event 6-7 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Montgomery County 4-H Fairgrounds. In an effort to provide a fun event and keep our community healthy and safe, we will be doing a drive-thru style event for this year through our Beef barn. This will also be a great opportunity to learn more about what the 4-H program has to offer youth in the community.

In order to provide a safe program for families in the community, we adjusted our format to be a drive-thru and ask that families remain in their vehicle the entire time. Please enter from the north side of the fairgrounds, off of Fairgrounds Avenue. There will be signs and volunteers to help direct you from there.

While Spooky Science is drive-thru style again this year, you can still expect fun, hands-on activities that you and your youth can do at home. The first 100 participants will receive a goodie bag with hands-on activities that relate to the 3 Mission Areas of 4-H: Science, Healthy Living and Civic Engagement. All youth will receive sweet treats throughout the entire drive-thru. While families will not be allowed out of their vehicles, they can still enjoy our livestock stations and learn what projects, trips and other opportunities 4-H has to offer.

This free event is open to all ages and we encourage families to still bring their youth in Halloween costumes. Youth do not have to be in 4-H to attend. We welcome all families and community members of Montgomery County to come out for a fun and relaxing evening together.

4-H enrollment started Oct. 1 and there is still time to enroll. Don’t delay in joining such a great youth development program that provides youth with the life skills that they need to make a difference.
