Halloween SPOOKtacular – Saturday, October 24 at Mineral Springs Park

Calling all Ghouls and Boys!  Dress up in your Halloween costume and come out to our Halloween SPOOKtacular for some safe Halloween fun!  Visit the cute animals at the petting zoo, enjoy a ride through the park on the hayride, find the items in the scavenger hunt and take a photo at the fall-themed photo shoot area.  Also, all attendees will receive a bag of candy!  You MUST be pre-registered to attend this event; staff will be checking the registration list for attendees to be able to participate in each activity.  Every person, regardless of age, who is attending needs to be registered and pay the $2 fee.  Choose from 4 time slots to attend: 10:00 to 11:00am, 11:30am to 12:30pm, 1:00 to 2:00pm or 2:30 to 3:30pm.  We have a Safety Plan (which you can find on the event page on our website and will be communicated to you if you register) created to keep the event safe, while offering the opportunity for kids to have some Halloween fun.
