No tricks, just treats!
We are casting a spell for all not-so-scary ghosts and ghouls to make their way to Gathering Place for Sweets & Treats on Spooky Street presented by US Cellular. Chapman Adventure Playground is transforming into a Halloween spooktacular for two nights full of non-frightful, free festivities. With trick-or-treat candy stations, live entertainment, and a monster mash dance party, Spooky Street will be a jack-o-lantern jam to scream about! Meet us at Spooky Street on October 30 and 31 from 6-9 p.m.
