Halloween Spook-tacular inviting children young and old to celebrate

The Golden Interact Club has some spooky fun planned for this weekend's kids Halloween party at the Rec Plex.

Young kids’ favourite night of the year is coming up soon, but before you go out trick-or-treating on the 31st, kids will also have the chance to dress up and have some fun a the annual Kids Halloween Spook-tacular.

The Interact Club is hosting the event with the Town of Golden, and they have some exciting activities planned for the children.

“We did it last year and it was a really big hit,” said Madison Ehman, Interact Club member.

“Helping out with events like this really keeps us connected with kids in the community,” said Interact member Madeline Archibald. “We’re really just kids ourselves.”

The club has about 18 members who will be helping out with the party, which means they are going to have their hands full with the 300 to 400 kids that are expected at the party.

“We’ll be busy for sure, but it will be a lot of fun,” said Ehman.

Not only will there be lots of games to keep the kids entertained, the Interact Club will also be setting up a haunted house. Of course one of the most entertaining parts of any Halloween party is checking out the costumes.

“Last year there were lots of kids dressed up in Frozen costumes. A lot of super heroes too,” said Archibald.

“I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the big ones will be this year.”

The Town will be giving the club a donation for running the party, which they will be putting towards their trip to Mexico. The club has been fundraising to send its members to Mexico to build a house, which will cost the club roughly $25,000 to $30,000.

The Halloween Spook-tacular is at the Mount 7 Rec Plex from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday Oct. 22, and will be followed by a public skate in costume at the Golden Arena at 5 p.m
