35th Annual Citywide Halloween Fun Fest Set for October 31
The 35th Annual Citywide Halloween Fun-Fest will be held on Thursday, October 31, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the former Allen Park Ice Rink. The event has been planned to offer a safe, fun and no-cost alternative to trick-or-treating door to door. The event is for children 12 years of age and under. Individuals over 12 years of age must be accompanied by a child, and children under 6 years must be accompanied by a parent or an adult.
The evening will feature games, a haunted house, refreshments, and musical entertainment by Take 2. There will be a Costume Parade at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. as part of the two costume judging contests with winners announced at 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Two grand prize winners will receive bicycles.
