For a safe and fun Halloween activity, the Halloween Carnival is the ticket.
Sponsored by the city of Westminster, the event is from 4-7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, at City Park Recreation Center, 10455 Sheridan Blvd.
The Halloween Carnival features a jumping castle, face painting, crafts and carnival games. Cost is $4 per child which includes full access to the recreation center. Parents and guardians are free.
“With admission you get 10 game tickets which can be used at the carnival games,” said Heather Hammarstrom, recreation specialist. “Children also go home with a goodie bag.”
Hammarstrom said about 600 children attend the carnival each year and one of the most popular activities is the opportunity to meet a super hero.
Children can get autographs and pictures with Batman, Captain America and Wonder Woman, to name a few. The Westminster Fire Department will also have a spooky safety booth with fun activities and safety tips for parents.
“We will have games for the little ones, five and younger and also have games in the pool,” Hammarstrom said. “What’s great about this event is that families have access to the recreation center as well, so they can also enjoy the amenities in the center. Plus it’s a safe environment for children.”
Additional carnival tickets can be purchased for 25 cents each and costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. For more information contact Hammarstrom at 303-658-2223.
