Halloween activities highlight Park District notes
October 8, 2013, It’s the Second Annual Trick or Treat with the Mayor followed by Trunk or Treat. Your Park District has partnered with the City of Lincoln and Main Street Lincoln to bring a lot of fun for our trick or treaters in Downtown Lincoln. Join us on Saturday, October 26 to register in Latham Park beginning at 3:00 p.m. At 3:30 Mayor Snyder will lead our Trick or Treaters around the downtown area stopping at participating business, allowing the costumed children to fill their bags with goodies.
From 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. everyone should go to the south side of the Courthouse on Pulaski Street for Trunk or Treat where the young people will go from decorated vehicle to vehicle. Free Hot Dogs will be provided by Joe Ryan Country Financial and the YMCA will be offering lots of fun and games for the children. Trunk or Treat provides a safe environment for families to enjoy an inexpensive Halloween atmosphere. If you have any questions about these FREE events please call the Park District at 732.8770 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To reserve a space for Trunk or Treat please call the Park District. There are no registration fees. Individuals, businesses and organizations are invited to participate in Trunk or Treat. All you have to do is come downtown, park, decorate your vehicle with a Halloween theme and bring lots of candy or anything a child may enjoy. Participants may begin setting up their vehicles at 3:30.
Of course it just couldn’t be Halloween without Halloween FunFest. The fun kicks off on Wednesday, October 30th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Symphony of Lincoln at 2202 North Kickapoo Street. Trick or Treaters will go from room to room receiving treats from the residents within the facility. We encourage parents to take their small children because the residents really enjoy seeing the young people in their costumes.
Following that it is Halloween FunFest time at the Park District running from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on our indoor tennis courts. There will be lots of games for the costumed Trick or Treaters to play and everyone wins prizes and candy. This is a free event for the children and their families due to the generous donations and financial support of many of our local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
A new Beginner Kickboxing Class is being offered on Saturday mornings in the Aerobics room at 9:15 a.m. Certified Instructor, Danita Barger will be teaching the basics of punches, kicks and terminology. Full boxing gloves are recommended, but not required. The gloves are suggested for the extra protection and added weight components that would enhance your workout. This class is designed with beginners in mind and is scheduled to be 30 minutes in length.
