Rock your Halloween: volunteer or participate in three fun events

RockYourHalloween3

Whether you’re looking for a good scare or family fun, the Town of Castle Rock has many ways to rock your Halloween.


Castle of Terror: Freak Show

The Castle Rock Fire Department’s Castle of Terror will frighten guests from 7 to 10 p.m. Oct. 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28, at the Town’s Fire Training Tower, 303 Malibu St.  


The haunted house is not recommended for young children, and those under 13 will not be admitted without an adult. Tickets are $10 cash, $12 for credit card and $20 for a fast pass, which gets visitors to the front of the line. Tickets are sold at the door. Proceeds benefit the Fire and Police Explorer Programs.


More than 50 volunteers are needed for each night of this event. Learn more and sign up at VolunteerConnectDC.org.  


Spooktacular

For younger goblins, the Oct. 28 Spooktacular festival will offer activities such as face painting, a jumpy house, games, crafts and contests. It will run from 1 to 3 p.m. at the MAC.


Harvest Festival

Celebrations continue on Oct 28 with Harvest Festival from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park.


Enjoy a pumpkin patch, hay bale maze, hay rides, mini pumpkin painting, and pumpkin carving. Movies begin after sunset. Delicious food and craft beer will be available for purchase.


Volunteers are needed to help with pumpkin carving, hay rides, the hay bale maze and face painting. Visit VolunteerConnectDC.org to learn more and sign up.


What about Trick or Treat Street?

The Town knows Trick or Treat Street has been a family favorite, and it’s been a joy to coordinate this fun event in partnership with the Downtown Merchants Association. As Downtown transforms this summer, much of the traditional Trick or Treat Street area is under construction, and safety is our top priority.


That’s why the Town and the Downtown Merchants Association decided not to host the event this year. When Festival Park and other Downtown improvements are completed, we’ll brainstorm what this event might look like in the future.


In the meantime, The Downtown Merchants Association has worked with business owners for fun Halloween day activities and specials. Check out their Facebook page at Facebook.com/DowntowntCastleRock.
