Marlborough - Employment Options, Inc., a regional leader in providing a variety of crucial services to individuals recovering from mental illness, will host the second annual Family Fall Festival Saturday, Sept. 14, from 12 – 5 p.m.

All are invited and encouraged to come kick off the fall season at the Hudson Elks Pavilion, 99 Park St., Hudson. The event gets area families into the fall spirit while raising money for the programs of Employment Options.

The festival will feature a whole host of activities, including a petting zoo, inflatable rides and bounce house for kids, a teddy bear clinic, games, and face painting. The event will also feature a live DJ and catered barbecue food by Catering Options. Adults are $10; kids, $5; kids under five years old, free.

The RE/MAX Balloon is also scheduled to return to give tethered hot air balloon rides in the late afternoon, weather permitting. A golf ball drop will be held at 4 p.m., in which one lucky person will win $1,000. To enter, email Employment Options at sleary@employmentoptions.org and let them know you would like to buy golf balls and be entered into the drawing.

Employment Options is a nonprofit agency serving those in the Metrowest region who are looking to take control of their mental health and wellness. With a forward-thinking approach, Employment Options provides the tools for members with Workforce Development Programs, Young Adult Initiatives, Housing Assistance and the Family Options Program.
