Fairgrounds To Host Spookyville

The South Florida Fair invites families and children to attend Spookyville, a safe Halloween event that will take place Oct. 16-18, Oct. 23-25, Oct. 30 and on Halloween, Oct. 31.

The activities will take place in Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds. Hours are Fridays from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The cost is $10 per person, with kids 2 and under free. Parking is free.

“Spookyville is designed to be an old-fashioned Halloween event for kids 12 and under with trick or treating each day,” said Lorie Stinson, the fair’s special events manager. “It’s lots of fun for the whole family.”

Spookyville highlights include trick-or-treating, carnival rides, a haunted maze, old-fashioned games, arts and crafts, a spooky house, a scavenger hunt, a barrel train, vendors and refreshments.

Those who wear a costume on both Sundays can compete for prizes starting at 1 p.m. A pet costume contest will be held on Fridays, Oct. 16, 23 and 30 at 7 p.m. Pets must be on a leash when entering the event, and no exotic pets or reptiles are allowed. Backpacks, food, glass containers and alcohol are prohibited.
