Town bringing Halloween spirit to the kids

The annual Children’s Halloween Party returns to the Golden and District Arena on Saturday Oct. 26.

The annual Children’s Halloween Party returns to the Golden and District Arena on Saturday Oct. 26 from 3 to 5 p.m., followed by a loonie costume public skate from 5 to 6:45 p.m.

The afternoon will feature some of the classic kid’s activities with  themed crafts, games, play zone and a haunted dressing room.

Costumes are encouraged and prizes will be handed out at random to all participants.  The event is hosted for toddlers to 12 years, however everyone is welcome to attend.

This year Town of Golden Recreation Services has teamed up with the Golden Senior Secondary leadership class to host the party.

“Recreation Services is excited to work with the leadership team on crafting up the event,” said Jordan Petrovics Manager of Recreation Services with the Town of Golden.

“We are working with a group of students who are passionate about being active and making a difference in the community.  The event is an opportunity for the class to get some hands-on experience with planning and leading a community activity.”

“We are grateful to have the support of these student leaders. When we introduced the partnership concept to the class, the majority of the students shared stories about how much fun they had at these events growing up.  I’m looking forward to seeing the creativity the teams puts towards hosting the event for this generation of kids,” said Kim Bryan, Recreation Services Co-ordinator.

In exchange for the support, Recreation Services will be making a donation to the high school yearbook, one of the leadership class’ major projects.
