Hesston College will host the Homecoming Family Festival on September 24 during their annual Homecoming celebration. This year’s festivities will include sporting events, food trucks, lawn games and family friendly fun.
The Homecoming Family Festival will feature volleyball and soccer games. In volleyball, the Larks are up against McPherson College JV at 3 p.m. In soccer, the women’s team will play Allen Community College at 5 p.m. and the men’s team will play at 7:30 p.m. Admission to both soccer games is free and admission to the volleyball match is free with Homecoming registration.
The Manickam Mosey walk/fun run will take place at 11 a.m. Walkers and runners of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in this Hesston College tradition. The two-mile route will wind through the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains. Early registration is encouraged.
The community is also invited to play the Hesston College Homecoming Highlight disc golf tournament, hosted at the Doug Unruh Memorial disc golf course on Hesston College campus late Saturday afternoon. Registration for the event costs $20 a person and $10 for Hesston College students and will include a T-shirt. All proceeds will go to the Hesston College Disc Golf Team. Tee time is 4 p.m. For more information and to register for player divisions visit hesston.edu/dgtourney.
Youth are invited to visit the bouncy house on campus during the festival. Community members are welcome to try their hand at lawn games and gather at Adirondack chairs placed across campus. “It is exciting to see alumni, students and the community coming together and connecting,” said Hesston College alumni relations officer Jen Lehman.
Attendees will have their choice of three local food trucks. The Urban Skillet, Salted Creamery and MOBB Foods will be stationed on campus. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. the food trucks will be located north of Sieber Field.
