Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, Disney Princesses— they are all welcome.
The air is turning crisp and leaves are falling to the ground which can only mean one thing— Halloween is just days away and local businesses are celebrating.
Crown Sports Center will hold the annual ‘Halloween Spooktacular’ on Friday, Oct. 21 from 6 – 8 p.m. The annual event welcomes children of all ages to dress up, trick-or-treat and more.
Darbi Hughes, fundamental sports coordinator at Crown Sports Center, says the event fits well with the businesses’ mission statement.
“Since we are involved with kids and with the holidays we try to do things for kids in a positive way, we try to offer things kids may not be able to do and in a fun atmosphere.”
Registration for the Halloween Spooktacular costume contest starts at 5:30 p.m. The costume contest will include infants, ten year olds and everything in between, beginning promptly at 7 p.m. Children ages 0 – 3 will be judged from 7 – 7:20 p.m., followed by ages 3 – 6 from 7:20 – 7:40 p.m. and lastly, ages 7 – 10 from 7:40 – 8 p.m. Hughes says there will be three winners picked from each age group.
Various vendors will be set up indoors handing out candy to children throughout the event. Bennett Farms Market & Garden Center has donated pumpkins allowing children to paint pumpkins on a first come, first serve basis. Lastly, bounce houses, face painting and Halloween themed games will be available for $5.
Hughes says the event is all about safety and fun.
“Safety is the number one thing,” Hughes says. “We definitely want to provide a safe fun atmosphere for the kids and having it inside with all our staff here does that.”
