Naperville families and YMCA members visited the Kroehler Family YMCA on Friday, August 10, for the annual Back to Class Block Party, a free family event full of kid-friendly activities to celebrate the end of the summer and the start of the new school year as well as to expose parents to the different programs the Y offers.

The bounce house and atmosphere of the event attracted the attention of passersby families who decided to participate in the event. Some activities included a relay race, a coconut toss, crafts, and a movie.

The Back to Class Block Party was hosted in conjunction with the Movies in the Park, sponsored by Compass Mortgage. Blake DeYoung, Marketing Director of Compass Mortgage says the event helps to “create a sense of community.” The next Movies in the Park event is on Friday, September 7.
