The City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a Halloween Festival on Thursday, Oct. 25, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Georgetown Community Center, 445 E. Morrow St.
The Halloween Festival, now in its 24th year, will feature a free Trick-or-Treat Village, as well as carnival-style games and food.
Attendees are encouraged to participate in the free costume contest, sponsored by Suddenlink. The contest will be held by age group: newborns-age 2 at 6 p.m.; ages 3-5 at 6:30 p.m.; ages 6-8 at 7 p.m.; and ages 9-10 at 7:30 p.m.
Carnival games are 25 cents per ticket, and one or more tickets are required for each game, activity or concession. Pumpkin painting tickets are $2. Only cash will be accepted, and quarters and small bills are appreciated.
Music will be provided by the Georgetown Project in partnership with the Assets After-school Alliance as part of the national Lights On Afterschool event, which calls attention to the importance of after-school programs for America’s children, families, and communities.
