LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Hundreds gathered for a picnic and some family fun at Columbian Park Saturday.
The 31st annual Labor Day Picnic was put on by the Northwest Indiana Central Labor Council. The event was free to the public and featured a number of activities including face painting, potato sack racing and a climbing wall.
There was also a dunk tank, with funds raised there going toward the United Way. All of the activities were built around giving families time to spend it together.
“I mean, life’s so hectic now people working all the hours they do, we like to let people have a chance to spend some time with their family,” said Dennis DeMay, president of the Northwest Indiana Central Labor Council.
