YMCA of Delaware Branches Host Fall Festivals in October

Safe, Socially Distant Activities For Everyone!

 Wilmington, DE- Don’t miss out on the fun when YMCA of Delaware locations in all three counties host Fall Festivals the last week in October. Events vary by location and include a variety of family-friendly, safe and socially distant activities such as outdoor trunk or treats, costume parades, Halloween themed exercise classes, pumpkin plunges in the pool and more. Plus, each attendee will be entered into a drawing for lots of great prizes like a month of free membership, gift cards and more! To view activities by branch, visit www.ymcade.org/fallfest/.

The YMCA’s Fall Festivals are one of many free community events held for families each year. Others include the Winter Beach Party, which kicks off Summer Camp registration, as well as Healthy Kids Day in April. Additionally, all Delaware Y locations offer free family fun nights and monthly parents’ night out events, giving youth a safe, fun place to hang out with friends.

Health and safety are the Y’s top priorities. The YMCA of Delaware continues to follow the guidelines set forth by State of Delaware health and public officials and have taken all necessary steps to ensure a healthy and comfortable experience for members and staff. When visiting the Y, members can expect smaller group sizes in classes, spaced out equipment on the fitness center floor, the use of masks, daily health screenings for staff, increased cleaning frequency and more. To see all the safety measures put in place, you can visit https://www.ymcade.org/covid-19-updates/. In addition, the Y recently installed Needle Point Bipolar Ionization Units in the HVAC equipment at all locations. These units are recommended by the American Society of Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Engineers (ASHRAE) and are proven to be 99.4 percent effective in killing COVID-19.
