Green Bay-area children and their families are invited to attend a “Spooktacular” Halloween-themed event from noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at the Kress Events Center at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
Organized by UW-Green Bay Housing and Residence Life, the free Spooktacular event will feature Halloween-themed games, candy and plenty of fun. Children of all ages are encouraged to come in costume and can choose from such games and activities as Plinko, pumpkin decorating, face-painting, ring toss, a bouncy house, pumpkin bowling and more.
The UW-Green Bay women’s basketball team plays a Kress Center exhibition home game at 2 p.m. that day, and Phoenix fans are encouraged to come early and enjoy the festivities. Kids will receive wristbands upon arrival and will receive free admission to the game, with tickets available for parents to purchase. A women’s basketball sign-making station will be among the activities Spooktacular attendees can enjoy.
The Spooktacular event is being held in conjunction with Make a Difference Day, a national effort designed to encourage volunteerism and making a positive difference in one’s community. UW-Green Bay Housing and Residence Life is coordinating an additional community outreach effort, with students signing up to rake leaves and volunteer at a nursing home, the local Humane Society and elsewhere.
