Halloween at White Tank Mountain Park
Smiles, giggles, and squeals were in abundance as spooks and goblins – big and little – celebrated Halloween from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at White Tank Mountain Park on October 31. Both children and adults enjoyed the seasonal experience including great weathalloweenher and fun activities.
The event hosted by the park and staffed by Friends and park personnel featured a pumpkin bean bag toss in the Area 4 picnic area. This activity complemented the eerie walk around luminary- lighted Black Rock Trail loop. Howling coyotes and chirping desert frogs added to the Halloween atmosphere.
“Thank you to all the Volunteers and Staff at the Halloween Party! We had a Blast!!! Special Thanks to the guy who jumped out from behind the Bush and scared the Adults in the Group, the Kid was unfazed…lol…” Comment by a parent from the park’s Facebook page.
Friends of the Park set up the luminaries, provided the candy, and manned 15 “Trick or Treat” stations for the children and their families. The youngsters dressed as Nijas, princesses, and “you name it” completed the loop with bags of sweets that pleased even a pirate.
The loop with candy stations was new to the park celebration this year and is planned again for next year.
Friends would like to thank the following contributers in supporting the event.
