The event will feature the Haunted Walk and Fairytale Forest, a pumpkin patch, a coloring contest, and a costume contest. Also featured will be children's rides, face painting, sand art, a trackless train, and snacks and beverages at Dracula’s Food Court, open from 3:30 to 8:30 PM.
Attracting thousands of costumed kids each year, the event is designed as a safe alternative to trick-or-treat. Walks are scheduled by scariness level, from the non-scary Fairytale Forest walk for younger kids through two levels of Haunted Walks for older, braver kids.
Fairytale Forest walks, featuring the Pumpkin Patch, costumed characters, kids' activities, a magician, performances by Dimensions in Dance, DJ Willy, and more, are scheduled for 3:30, 5:00, 5:30 and 7:00 PM.
Scary Haunted Walks are scheduled for 4:30 and 6:00 PM. Scarier Haunted Walks are scheduled for 7:00 and 8:30 PM.
Registration for the costume contest will be at 3:30 and at 6:30 PM, with costume judging at 5 and 7 PM. (Children under age 3 will be judged at 4 and 5 PM.) Contest winners will be announced at 7:30 PM. (Contestants need not be present.)
