Halloween Party


The Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department will host the 2012 Children’s Halloween Party on Thursday, October 25, 6-8:30 pm. The party is primarily for preschool and elementary aged children. Older children attending with an adult are welcome.

Activities include carnival games, a giant inflatable caterpillar crawl, a game room for toddlers, Halloween cartoon videos, a glow room, and a craft room. The ever popular Scary Room will return with a pirate theme. A hayride is planned for Bissell Park, weather permitting.

Tickets will be sold at the door for 25 cents each. Most of the activities cost 1 or 2 tickets. The craft room, cartoon videos and toddler area are free. Concessions and souvenirs will also be available for purchase in the Glow Room.

Area organizations and businesses are invited to sponsor game booths for the event by providing volunteers to work. The Recreation and Parks Department will provide the games and prizes unless the sponsoring group chooses to provide their own. Volunteers should plan to arrive by 5:30 p.m. and work until 8 p.m. The first fifty volunteers will receive an event tee shirt. Following the event all volunteers will be served a pizza meal.
