KidsFest & Halloween Safety Tips

Written by Brittany Page

On Wednesday, October 31, the City of Woodstock is celebrating Halloween with all our younger ghouls and goblins in The Park at City Center, 101 Arnold Mill Road, from 3:00-8:00pm. As a safe alternative to trick or treating, bring the family, and enjoy activities for children of all ages. With activities such as a moonwalk, DJ Ronnie playing some spooky tunes, Tim the Magician, Adam the Juggler, festive games, and the ever-popular stringed apple and pumpkin bowling, this event is sure to be a haunting good time.

A costume contest will take place at 6:00pm. Trophies and prizes will be awarded in the following categories: funniest, scariest, cutest, and best costume. And, let’s not forget our pets!  Dress them up because we will have a pet costume contest as well. For more information on KidsFest, please visit

If you are going trick or treating, please remember the following safety tips:

- Only visit houses that have a front porch light on.
- Always carry a flashlight. This helps you see and allows others to see you.
- Walk in groups on the sidewalk, and use caution when crossing the street.
- Instead of wearing a mask as part of a costume, try face paint to avoid blocking vision.
- Motorists should drive with extreme caution in and around residential areas.
- Parents should inspect candy prior to children eating it. Throw away any unwrapped candy.

City officials and staff wish you a safe and enjoyable Halloween!
