About

Let's celebrate Halloween 2020!

- What will be at the event?

- Carnival-type games

- Pumpkin Patch

- Photo Opportunities

- Prizes

When can I buy a ticket?

The event was very popular and tickets have sold out. We offered as many spaces as we could, but have to keep attendance limited so that we can follow COVID safety precautions for the benefit of our community and staff. We hope you and your family have a safe and fun Halloween!

What can I wear?

Wear your Halloween costume, of course! It is the weekend before Halloween, silly! However, to keep yourselves and our staff safe during the event, please wear a face mask.

How will this event stay safe for my family?

This will be a car drive-thru event. We will have carnival-type games for children to play right outside of the car. Staff will be constantly disinfecting, practicing physical distancing, and wearing gloves. Do I need to stay in the car the entire time?

For parents/guardians, yes. Children will be the only ones allowed out of the car to play the games/activities. Parents may help their child in/out of the car if need be.

How old does my child need to be to participate in this event?

The games/activities are catered to Kindergarten through 5th grade children. Will my child be receiving any candy?

Yes! We will be giving pre-packaged candy in bags that will be sanitized. There will be prizes for playing games as well as a pumpkin patch where children can pick from (your child will point at the pumpkin they want, and we'll sanitize it prior to taking home!).
