With trick or treating being a bit up in the air because of COVID-19, the Pow City Kinsmen and the folks at Prairieland Park wanted to come up with a way for you to celebrate Halloween that everyone can get in on. This is two different Halloween experiences all happening at Prairieland Park; Trick or Treat 2020 where the kids will squeal as you wander through the park. This show is a multimedia presentation and they have a treat bag for the kids at the end of the show. The second spooktacular is not for the faint of heart as Scaryland Park comes to life in a scary trip through the abandoned midway. You never know who will come out of the woodwork, be prepared to scream. You are allowed to roll down your windows for both shows but you must be wearing a mask. All the proceeds go to the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation and Telemiracle. Tickets are $34.50/car in advance and $49.75 for the fast pass.
Children’s performer Sylvia Chave isn’t letting the pandemic put an end to the Halloween fun. She’s taking her annual Halloween Howl online for a music filled celebration. Get your kids dressed up in their costumes and log on to the On The Boards Staging Company website so they can sing along. The link to the show will be available 7:00a.m.-10:00p.m. each day so you can watch at your leisure. Tickets are $7 for a family or the group rates are $15 – $45.
