The gym at the Mountain View Elementary School was the place to be on Friday evening, October 16. Close to 100 children and their families enjoyed the evening of activities and best of all, each child had the opportunity to pick out a donated costume to take home.
PTO volunteers hosted the event by providing a dozen different activities as well as refreshments. The evening was a unique way of recycling Halloween costumes in an atmosphere of fun.
Painting Jack-o-Lanterns was just one of many activities enjoyed by families at Mountain View PTO's Costume Spooktacular.
The donated costumes (some of them brand new) were hung on a rope which extended a third of the way across the length of the gym. Items such as wigs, hats, scarves, shirts, masks, etc. were displayed on a table. All items were free and the kids had the chance to try them on and try them out.
Families were greeted by Mickey Mouse and Tigger and a tunnel maze of hay bales which the kids could navigate over and over again. In addition, they could create and decorate their own trick-or-treat bags, stamp Halloween bookmarks and cards, and paint a jack-o-lantern to take home.
Other fun activities included Twister, musical chairs, Halloween bingo, and create a Halloween snack. Cider and doughnuts were available throughout the evening as well as a variety of prizes for winners of the games.
Young and old alike got into the spirit of the holiday at this free Costume Spooktacular. It looks like this might become an annual event.
