Safe Halloween returns to Bronson Park on October 28

The City of Kalamazoo’s Parks and Recreation Department will host its 2017 Safe Halloween event Saturday, October 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Bronson Park in downtown Kalamazoo (200 South Rose Street).

This year’s event promises to be a great time for all, with activities such as pumpkin derby racing, a Rock on Ice pumpkin carving demonstration, face painting, pumpkin decorating, an inflatable bounce house, pumpkin bowling, sack races, individual and family costume contests, and much more! Attendees can also enjoy complementary donut holes and cider while supplies last, along with plenty of candy to fill Halloween bags.

Safe Halloween is a free event and although the activities are geared towards families with children, all community members are welcome.

“This is a great event that allows families to celebrate Halloween together and enjoy fall activities right in the heart of downtown,” said Sean Fletcher, Director of the City of Kalamazoo’s Parks & Recreation Department. “There will be something for everyone and more than enough candy to go around.”
