Our 14th annual Halloween Hoopla features interactive performances and games for kids under 10 and their adults.

Led by the ever-popular Unique Derique, the Hoopla features dancing to music by Chelle! & Friends, eco-friendly crafts courtesy of Trash Mash-Up, a mad scientist in our spooky graveyard, roving antics from the Pi Clowns, candy bag decorating with the Children’s Creativity Museum, and palm reading from the mysterious Madam Z. Bring your camera for the Ghoulish Photo Booth, and take a memento home! The program culminates in the eagerly awaited Halloween Costume Parade, where everyone shows off their Halloween finery.
