Monster Mash



Due to the weather, Monster Mash's new hours today will be 11am-4pm in order to give everyone more time in the park to enjoy the event after the rain slacks. We can't wait to see you all there!

For 25 years Monster Mash has taken place rain or shine, so please report at your regularly scheduled times and don't forget your new Halloween costume - a raincoat and boots!

Shopping, Community and Food Village Vendors, entertainment, games and activities Vendors... as always, Monster Mash is taking place rain or shine. We thank you sincerely for your support of our Parenting Center through this long-standing community event and can't wait to see you today. We are extending the event by one hour (closing at 4pm) and while we understand if previous commitments keep you from staying past 3, we hope you will consider it. Also, keep in mind that since the park will be populated with guests until 4pm, new routes will have to be taken if you pack up and leave before 4pm. Please be patient with our new drive out procedures for the safety of our little ghosts and ghouls. Thank you again!

Get ready....

Your favorite community event is about to get even more SPOOKTACULAR!
