BOOTANICAL HALLOWEEN FUN AND FOOD DRIVE
posted by admin at 23:00 || under Monthly Newsletters
October 31, 2010
4:00 pm to 8:00 pm
On October 31st, Clark Gardens becomes BOOtanical Park - a marvelously fun and safe place for kids of all ages to enjoy Halloween.
The BOOtanical is also a time we participate in a community-wide food drive benefiting our three area food banks in Mineral Wells: First Christian Church, First United Methodist Church, and New Haven Ministries. Bring a non-perishable food item as a donation and you receive free admission to our Halloween festivities on October 31st.
There were more than 1,200 visitors who attended BOOtanical last year and filled three pickup trucks with food for the food banks. This year's BOOtanical promises to be even better.
There will be:
- Activities designed for children 12 and under.
- Trick or Treating
- Arts & Crafts
- Ghostly Movies
- Pet Costume Contest
- People Costume Contest
- DJ Music
- Food & beverages.
- Walk through the Enchanted Forest and learn about the life of animals after dark.
If you or your organization would like to volunteer to help the little goblins at the activity and game booths, please contact us and let us know. 940-682-4856
