Parks and Rec sponsors two Halloween parties

October 25, 2007


The Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department has planned two children's Halloween activities on Saturday.

The Indoor Aquatic Center, 4706 Overland Drive, is hosting a Spook 'n' Splash party for children ages 3 to 12. Children can swim, play games and eat candy from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The evening kicks off with a costume contest, and prizes will be awarded for the scariest, funniest and most original costumes. The fee for the event is $4 and the registration deadline is today. For more information contact Jai Hoyer, aquatics programmer, at 832-7946.

Also on Saturday, a Trunk or Treat Party is planned from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the East Lawrence Recreation Center, 1245 E. 15th St.

Families are asked to decorate their car's trunk or hatch and bring candy so children can trick-or-treat in a supervised environment. Free hot dogs, chips and drinks will be served at 6 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for best decorated trunk and best costume. Participation is free. For more information or to reserve a parking spot, contact Olivia Mayer, recreation center programmer, at 832-7950.

Parks and Recreation also recommends Halloween Night trick-or-treating from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. The department also encourages homeowners wishing to participate to turn on porch lights.
