TROY – Downtown Troy will be filled with fun as Troy Main Street hosts August’s First Friday Event: Nonprofit Game Night on Friday, August 5th from 5:30-8:00 PM. This family-friendly event features games of all kinds throughout the downtown and inside businesses and is free to the public.
“We are really excited to partner with local nonprofit organizations for this event,” said Andrea Keller, Executive Director of Troy Main Street. “There will be so many opportunities to play games, learn about local nonprofit organizations, and explore our wonderful downtown businesses, that you’ll want to spend the entire evening downtown.”
Games will be available for all ages and will include Giant Jenga hosted by Partners In Hope, Giant Connect Four hosted by the Miami County Animal Shelter, a dunk tank hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Troy, Carnival Games hosted by CASA/GAL of Miami County, and so much more! In addition to nonprofits hosting games, several of our downtown businesses will have games available as well.
