Attend Family Friendly Friday in Southeast: A ballet performance, free family portraits, and more!

As a "Thank you" to the Southeast community for sharing their stories with Input Fort Wayne's On the Ground Southeast series, we're partnering with Bridge of Grace Compassionate Ministries Center, the Fort Wayne Ballet, and Blacklight Media to host Family Friendly Friday on Friday, Sept. 18, from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. at 5110 Smith Street.

The event will feature a special performance by the Fort Wayne Ballet, an outdoor gallery of resident portraits taken during Input Fort Wayne's On the Ground Southeast series, as well as the opportunity to get a family portrait or headshot taken with Fort Wayne's own Blacklight Media, whose photography has graced the pages of national publications like TIME Magazine. Spanish and Burmese translators will be onsite to assist non-English speaking residents.

This event is FREE of charge, with translation services made possible by the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation in partnership with Language Services Network. Light prepackaged snacks and drinks will be provided by Input Fort Wayne. Masks and social distancing are encouraged.

We invite anyone and everyone to join us for an evening of fun, entertainment, and community pride.
