Welcome to the Family Fun UN-Fest Virtual Mall!

Just like the face-to-face Family Fun Fests that have taken place at the Indiana Mall for the past 18 years, you can explore the offerings from a wonderful variety of organizations, civic groups, and agencies that serve families/children in Indiana County. 

 

Each agency has provided a video for you to watch that tells about the services they provide and demonstrates an activity or craft for your child to do! (Videos go live on May 6th.)

 

You have the option to download the supply list/instructions for the activity/craft prior to the opening day so that you can participate as you watch the videos when they go live on May 6th.

Pre-Register (no cost) to be entered to win supply kits and recieve updates!

Additionally, for each video you watch, you and your child can link to a puzzle (Crossword or Word Search) that pertains to the information you will see. Submit your completed puzzles to be entered for more prizes!**)
