Archbold Area Chamber of Commerce held their second annual Shindig on July 22 beginning at 4:30 p.m. Community members, friends and family were welcomed to attend a evening filled with summer fun at Ruihley Park in Archbold.
The southwest side of Ruihley Park had three bounce houses for kids, including an inflatable Jousting Ring.
Underneath the smaller park shelter was face painting, and kids’ crafts. Young ones enjoyed making their own sun visor.
Attendees were able to enjoy delicious ice cream from the Tropical Freeze truck where they had multiple options of slushies, ice cream, and flurries.
Archbold Lions Club set up a cookout inside the park pavilion, providing hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks for a small cost.
To end a splendid evening, a movie in the park was provided. A showing of “Moana” began at 6:30 p.m. and a popcorn and candy booth was available during the movie.
