Halloween Festival The whole community creates a magical experience for the broader community. Families are greeted by the King and Queen of Halloween and then invited to follow their guiding light to witness a dozen short skits unfold along an enchanted path. Youth receive hand made crafts after each skit and are then are invited to enjoy a home made cup cake and a cup of cider around the bonfire. The festival is created for young children to have a magical and welcoming Halloween experience.
