    Halloween Spooktacular

    The City of Marco Island Parks and Recreation will be hosting the annual Halloween Spooktacular event on Saturday, October 23rd from 4:00 – 6:00pm.

    Everyone from kids to adult is encouraged to dress in their Halloween costumes best and bring a basket or bag to collect all the candy and treats at each craft and game station during Spooktacular.

    Visitors to Halloween Spooktacular this year will be able to purchase pumpkins at the "Pumpkin Patch" area located near the basketball courts and be able to paint their own pumpkins provided by New Life Community Church of God. Hot dogs, snacks and drinks will also be provided for purchase.

    At 4:30pm we will have a special guest demonstration by our own Marco Magic cheerleaders led by coaches Lyndsi Koszo and Britney Bo. Our squad of 25 girls will show off their skills of stunting, tumbling, cartwheels and amazing pyramids.

    At 5:00pm we will have a special guest demonstration by our local Marco Island Zumba instructors to get everyone motivated and energized for the fall and holiday season with some Latin flare.

    The highlight for the evening will be our annual Halloween costume contest held at 5:30pm. Children will be divided into four age groups: 3 years and younger, 4 & 5 years, 6 & 7 years, and 8 – 10 years. Contest judging will be based on the Most Creative Costume, Funnies Costume and Scariest Costume from all age groups. First place winners will receive a $40.00 gift certificate from Marco Island Parks and Recreation to be used for any recreation or racquet center children’s program.
