The evening commenced with the children making their own trick-or-treat bags, scary puppets and slime followed by spider webs made of pretzels and marshmallows with Italian pasta made of what looked liked green guts. Following the festivities, the children gathered around Mrs.Crews (Longfellow Elementary) for a Halloween story time while parents spread throughout the building, preparing for the trick-or-treaters.
Organizers from the Tanya Duran family concluded: “They were more than happy with the turn out and family participation,” as the event “was a lock-in intended to keep the kids in the neighborhood safe while enjoying time with their family.” “Parents wait in anticipation for next year’s October Treat-Fest. It was better to spend time with their family indoors than out in the cold and still be able to get just as much or even more candy.”
The Believe Center’s next family event will be Family Movie Night on November 30th. This event is FREE for families, and concession stands are always available this event is the last Friday of every month at 8pm (excluding December). November features: A Christmas Story 2.
