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!
You have the option to download the supply list/instructions for the activity/craft so that you can participate as you watch the videos.

Adults, please note: Many of the UN-Fest videos are housed on YouTube. The CAC's YouTube Channel complies with the Made for Kids restrictions. However, it is the intention of Un-Fest, that videos be viewed by adults and children together. It is always a good idea to monitor all of your children's activity on Youtube and any other social and online content.
Activity: The Lung Experiment AICDAC Family Unfest Video Terra Cravener, from the AICDAC Prevention Team, will talk about tobacco using lungs to show the difference of what a healthy (red lung) looks like and functions vs. an unhealthy (smoke infusion dark lung) looks like and functions.
