The youngest goblins and ghosts will gather for a Halloween Party.
The event will be held at the Westchester Park District’s Community Center, 10201 Bond St. for a Halloween Party, 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 27. The free event is for kids ages 1-8, with parents.
“We’ll have games in the gym, popcorn and hot chocolate, and crafts in another room,” Early Childhood Director Kathy Kasprzak said. “Outside, there will be hayrides that will take you around the park and right to a mini-pumpkin patch where you can pick a pumpkin to take home. We’ll also have pony rides outside.”
The hayride path will be decorated with not-too-scary images, such as spider webs and spiders.
Kasprzak noted that children come to this annual event in all kinds of creative costumes, from the bride of Frankenstein to a unicorn.
“The kids have a great time,” Kasprzak said. “They get to play games, win prizes, eat popcorn. They look forward to it every year.”
