On Oct. 28 from noon to 3 p.m. the South Brunswick Department of Parks and Recreation and LocalChatBox.com are hosting the 2nd Annual Halloween Spooktacular.
Kids infant to 12-years-old can come in costume and Trick or Treat with local businesses at Woodlot Park on 124 New Road. There is also a grand prize giveaway, which is a tombstone covered in local gift cards from places like Dusals, Hawaiian Bronze Tanning, the Hampton Inn, Confectionately Yours, jerZjump and more.
There will also be a bounce house sponsored by Camp Bow Wow of Lawrenceville and glow in the dark mini golf sponsored by Crown of India. Both are provided by www.PlaytimeParty.com.
There will also be food, drinks, games, activities, prize giveaways and entertainment. The party will include two dance entertainment shows (from Dance on Q and Artists In Motion), and a karate show from Family Karate Super Center.
Some of the vendors attending are Mad Science, where kids will get to make science projects, Kids’ Music Round will have musical instruments for the kids to play, SBAA will be raffling away a free softball and free baseball registration. Jeff Hoffmann and Sons Plumbing, My Gym of South Brunswick and so many more local businesses will be participating.
This is a free admission event.
The Halloween Event was a huge success last year, with over 600 township residents attending. The event occurred the day after the fluke Halloween snow storm in 2011.
"The only drawback was that it got crowded," said Suzanne O’Rourke, owner of LocalChatBox.com, an online web site for Central NJ that offers consumers a local business directory, printable coupons, ratings/reviews and local event listings. "In order to eliminate the crowd staying until the end, we will not have a tricky tray this year. Rather prizes will be given away at each table and the winner will be contacted. This way consumers can come and stay, but dont feel that they have to stay until the end of the event.
“It’s a great community event, with tons of candy for the trick or treaters, and being that its indoors its a fun way to trick or treat. There are lots of activities for the kids and the parents can learn more about some of our local businesses.”
