The big open room will be full of laughter, squeals and other happy-kid-noise, as little witches, vampires and monsters run here, then there, bounce, slide and have fun at the annual Mini-monster Bash in Stony Plain.
Bring your Halloweeners for lots of spooky fun at the Heritage Park Pavilion on Saturday, Oct 26. The free event draws over 1,000 little ghouls and booo-oys from around the region for crafts, treats and bouncy fun fun fun.
The family festival starts at 10 and runs until 2 at the big new multi-use space on the Stony Plain exhibition grounds.
Spooky fun all day
Dress-up in your spookiest, coolest or funniest costume to play in a big safe space. (We are going to be our favourite things: a racecar and a strawberry – and we know a grilled-cheese sandwich that’s coming too.)
The day’s fun has been planned for kids eight and under, but all kids are welcome. Even big kids like dad.
Crafts, cookies and bugs
Kids can pot up spider plants, make slime, bounce on the inflatable slides and bouncers, decorate cookies and cupcakes, get their faces painted and see some cool creepy crawly bugs up close.
Kids will also receive a glow-in the-dark loot bag to fill on Halloween night – and since I know they will ask you – yep, there will be candy and treats too.
Bring a food bank donation
This free, safe and fun Halloween party is put on with the financial and in-kind support of many community businesses. There is no cost to attend thanks to the generous community sponsors but visitors are encouraged to bring donations for the Parkland Food Bank.
Spooky toonie swim
On Friday night, the TransAlta TriLeisure Centre in Spruce Grove will be hosting a spooky toonie swim in their pool. Play games in the pool, win prizes and yep, get treats too. Admission is $2 on Oct 25 from 6–10 pm.
