LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A new festival came to Columbian Park Saturday.

The Arc of Tippecanoe County put on their first ever Arctober Fest.

Arctober Fest is an old-fashioned outdoor fall carnival, hosted by members of Arc.

Guests enjoyed a live DJ, dance contest, costume contest and much more.
Milissa O'Hern, executive director of Arc, said this event may be a first for them, but it won't be the last.

"This is gonna become an annual event for us, we enjoy Halloween and this is unique event, in that nobody else has one like it and we think this will be one of our signature events," said O'Hern.

Arc of Tippecanoe County hosts social programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. All of the funds from Arctober Fest will go toward paying dues and putting on activities for members.
