Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!
Are you ready to hear this phrase over and over during these last few days of October? Hopefully the kiddies that visit your home are polite and leave it to a simple “Trick or treat” when asking for candy, but why stop the fun at this one Halloween activity? There are plenty of autumn events happening in our area for you and your family to enjoy!
The DUNGEON at the Plover Point Boys and Girls Club is rumored to be one of the scariest haunted houses in all of Portage County—enter if you dare! This Haunted House runs from October 25th through October 31st and is put on in conjunction with the Stevens Point YMCA. Visit this Web site for more information and prepare for a scary good time!
Do your kids overdo the candy on Halloween and go into a “sugar shock?” Avoid the tasty temptations of October and attend the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum’s Healthy Halloween Hoedown on October 26th in Stevens Point. This event is sure to be fun for kids of all ages and includes healthy food, crafts, gift bags, and coincides with Trick or Treat down Main Street, so families will have the opportunity to score a few sweet treats from downtown businesses.
Head out to the Central Waters Brewery in Amherst on October 27th for a costume party and Halloween dance. Admission is required and the dance starts at 7:30. Get a babysitter and enjoy some adult Halloween fun for an evening.
Don’t forget to swing by Waupaca to vote for our Flo from Progressive Scarecrow in the 7th Annual Scarecrow Contest! Every cent collected in Flo’s donation bucket counts as a vote and all proceeds will be donated to the Waupaca Food Pantry. Other businesses will have their scarecrows on display as well, and you can vote as many times as you want; each cent counts as a vote. The scarecrows will be on display until October 29th.
Head north to Wausau for Willow Springs Garden’s Haunted Corn Maze, running from October 25th through October 28th. There are ghosts and goblins at every turn of this maze, so it is recommended that children attendees be at least 10 years old. Put on your walking shoes and head out for a fright-tastic family experience!
These events are just the tip of the iceberg of Halloween activities in Central Wisconsin. What are your favorite events to attend? Have a fun and safe Halloween!
