Ridgefield’s family fun Halloween Hall is back for its 4th year and will be better than ever. The Ridgefield Art Association and local community members have come together to create this family-friendly Halloween event on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19, 2019, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Abrams Park in Ridgefield.
Gather up the ghouls and goblins, pirates and princesses and enjoy some good old fashioned Halloween fun! Safe and fun for kids age 5 and above (not too scary for little ones). Maureen O’Reilly, Halloween Hall Chair and Ridgefield Art Association VP says, “This is a family fun event that will not be bloody or gross. It is meant for the younger age groups in grade school and middle school. Non-gorey costumes for children and adults are welcomed and encouraged.”
There is so much to see and do at the event with a straw bale maze, Dance Fusion “Thriller” performances at the bottom of each hour, pirates, food, beverages and so much more. Back again will be the Pumpkin Hunt inside the Hall with Main Street Moolah being given to the winners.
On Saturday there will be an added attraction as “That Damn VW Club” from Vancouver hosts a “Trunk or Treat” event starting at 5:00 PM.
Admission is $5 at the door. The event is created by the Ridgefield Art Association and funds raised are used to promote and support art in our community and schools.
“As with the three previous years, this is very much a community endeavor. The High School football team kicks off the set up by removing the heavy picnic tables from the building on October 12th. Creating the hall takes place over the next 5 days. The work is all done by volunteers. A small number of High School seniors volunteer their time along with RAA members and citizens of Ridgefield that just “love Halloween”. The Ridgefield Chamber of Commerce and a few employees of City Hall are new additions to the creation team. Returning favorites inside the venue are the Ridgefield Pirates, the blacklight hallway, a large (but friendly) snake and many many spiders. There might even be some stranger things.”
