Halloween Trick or Treat Trail for the kids 2017
Halloween for the kids. We go big time on Halloween and we turn a full park into a fully themed Halloween Park for the kids!
This is the 3rd year of our annual Halloween Trick or Treat Trail and it is going to be even bigger and better than the last 2 years. The idea is simple, instead of kids going trick or treating knocking on strangers doors, why don’t we get 100’s of families together on one little park to add some magic to Halloween and give the kids a night to remember.
Last year we had over 600 people, families and children all come together and it was the most magical halloween night ever. The kids absolutely loved it. Everyone was dressed up in their favourite Halloween costumes and we decorated the full park. We didn’t just decorate the park, we wired up a sound system around the park to play spooky background music. We had spot lights and lighting around the park to give it an authentic spooky feel and we built some amazing structures and had an area for fair ground type games where the kids could win sweets. We had volunteers all dressed up walking around the park with big buckets full of sweets where the kids could get sweets from.
At the beginning of the trail there was a huge ‘Web wall’ between the trees that people could stand in front of for an awesome photo opportunity. A little further on the trail, underneath a canopy of bare blossom trees became our incredible ‘Bat cave’, we hung hundreds of hand made bats from the branches, the effect was brilliant! As the trail continued we constructed a ‘Spider tunnel’ covered in web and spiders children were invited to walk through in order to receive sweets at the end for their bravery this was a very popular attraction. Just next to this was our ‘zombie battle zone’ we had our own assault course set up so children could run, climb and crawl through avoiding being caught by the zombies. At the top of the park was our incredible ‘Graveyard’ volunteers had hand crafted some amazing tombstones, there were bones lying around and the children had to search amongst the leaves and bones for hidden sweets, this kept them happily busy.
On the astro-turf square at the centre of the park we set up some fairground type activities which were opportunities for the children to win more sweets. We had a ‘Spooky Hoopla’ set up where children had to throw glowing rings around the glowing bottles. They could try their luck with our ‘Tin can alley’ the children had to knock down all of our spooky painted cans with beanbags for another sugary prize. We had traditional bobbing for apples and perhaps the most popular attraction out of all the fair games was the ‘Witches stew’ this was a huge tub of green goo and gloop (spaghetti) that required the kids to roll up their sleeves and dig around to find eyeballs which they could trade in for sweets.
This year is going to be even better! We will be adding more attractions for the kids, more fun and more games and we promise that it is going to be the best Halloween ever for the kids… and adults too of course.
