Halloween ghosts in early

October 3, 2013 by  

In the city of Doylestown, Halloween is coming a bit early this year.

Tomorrow, kids between the ages of 5 and 11 can attend the Department of Parks and Recreation’s Halloween Extravaganza. The fun-filled, somewhat spooky night will no doubt get youngsters in a suitably fiendish mood for the big night itself.

The evening will feature Halloween-themed arts and crafts projects, such as decorating pumpkins, as well as games with a spooky theme. Kids will have the opportunity to prepare a frightening ghoulish snack, too. The department of Parks and Recreation could use banner printing to transform the activity center into a frightening, Halloween-inspired location.
The Halloween Extravaganza is $20 for residents of the city or $25 for non-residents. It starts at 5:00 pm tomorrow.

Along with the kid-centric event, Doylestown is also hosting a pet-centric Howl-o-Ween event later in the month. On October 26, families can dress their four-legged friends up in costume and bring them to the Doylestown Dog Park for a day full of contests and raffles. Howl-o-Ween will also feature a bone hunt and a parade of rescued dogs.

The Doylestown Animal Medical Clinic will be on hand to offer microchipping for dogs for $45. A portion of the proceeds from the micro-chipping service will be donated back to the dog park.

This event will be held at the Doylestown Township Activity Center at 425 Wells Road. Howl-o-Ween is free for all and will take place from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm.

People can register online for either of these events.
