YMCA will be new location for 2016 ‘Boonanza’


The annual Beggar’s Night Boonanza will have a new location this year: the Fayette County Family YMCA, 100 Civic Drive in Washington C.H.

Once again this year, the Record-Herald and now the YMCA are inviting the community to join them for an evening of thrills and chills. Both organizations are encouraging residents to bring their own little ghosts and goblins inside the YMCA on Thursday, Oct. 27 from 5-7 p.m. to enjoy an evening of trick-or-treating.

While there, children will be greeted by many costumed characters who just might be willing to part with a few pieces of candy. This event will run nearly parallel with Beggar’s Night in Washington C.H., which will be held from 6-8 p.m.

“Boonanza will once again be a safe, warm, family-friendly and free event,” said Katie Bottorff, general manager of the Record-Herald. “This is a community event and we want to thank our wonderful community members for making this possible. We also want to thank the local businesses that are sponsoring this year’s Boonanza.”

As of today, the table sponsors will include the Record-Herald, Carroll Halliday, VFW #3762, the YMCA, Fayette County Republicans, the Red Cross, Bennett Salvage, Fayette Soil & Water, 9 Round, Tony’s Welding, Southern State Community College, Doug Marine Motors, Gusweiler, Community Action, Great Clips, the Humane Society, and Jim Van Dyke’s.

Also, please bring a non-perishable food item for the food drive, which will be sponsored by Carroll Halliday Ford.
