Orland Park ready for Halloween to ghost in

September 26, 2013 by  

Children’s attention is now turning toward the upcoming Halloween holiday and, to help make the wait a little shorter, the village of Orland Park is holding its 3rd annual Pumpkin Party on the first Saturday of October.

The Pumpkin Party will have lots of activities for children of all ages and their parents. It is hosted by the Village of Orland Park Recreation and Parks Department. There will be fall-themed arts and crafts activities, a Build a Scarecrow area, hayrides, and pony rides. Guests can also choose the perfect pumpkin in the Great Pumpkin Patch for $2 apiece.

In addition, there will be a pet costume parade (with awards such as Most Spooky and Most Unique) and a pie eating contest, which will have three age group categories: ages 8-11, 12-17, and 18 and over. There will also be games, dancing, and marshmallow roasting among other things, all adding up to an ideal event to get the kids excited about Halloween but also give them something to do while they wait.

Organizers of the event are likely to be contacting Orland Park printing companies to help them prepare for this popular annual event. This might include using banner printing to highlight certain areas, and making use of posters for decoration and flyers for advertising.

The Great Pumpkin Party will take place at the Centennial Park Warming House on October 5 from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Admission is free. For more information, call the Recreation and Parks Department at 708-403-7275.
