Stepping Stones Hosts Wickedly Fun Halloween Week October 23-31st
October 23, 2018 - October 31, 2018
Stepping Stones BOO-seum for Children welcomes all into its cauldron of play at Wickedly Fun Halloween Week October 23-31st. This year, the museum’s Halloween festivities are bigger and better as the Stepping Stones Boo Squad has conjured up a week’s worth of fun, exciting experiences that are sure to inspire and delight.
During Halloween Tricks and Treat Week from Tuesday, October 23 – Wednesday, October 31, enjoy daily costume catwalks, creature features, face painting, hat sorting, magic tricks, make-believe monsters, mask making, pumpkin decorating, silly sensory science lab experiments and BooZoo’s Great Pumpkin parades. You’re sure to have a monstrously-good time!
Highlights of Tricks and Treats Week include Frankenstein Friday on October 26 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Monster Mash on Saturday, October 27 from 4:00 -8:00 pm and Make Your Own Fun Days on October 30 – 31.
Monster Mash is the BOO-seum’s annual Halloween fete that is sure to “be a scream.” As always, Monster Mash is a spellbinding evening that is jam-packed with not-so-scary, costumed, family fun. Guests can meander through the museum to play ghoulish games like Eyeball Toss or Halloween BINGO, use catapults to launch flies into our creepy spider web in KLUTZ® Amazingly Immature, step into our BOO-tique to create monster-themed self-portraits in Express Yourself, show off their mind tricks as they play the Pumpkin Face Concentration memory game in the Light Gallery or strut their costumed stuff as they masquerade for the camera at our Photo Station. Our friendly ghosts and goblins will cap off this BOO-tiful evening at our Boo Bash as they boogie to the SPOOK-tacular tunes played by our DJ.
Don’t fret about bringing the littlest visitors. At this Halloween party, we won’t have you crying for your “mummy.” There will be age-appropriate activities for all visitors, so that the whole family can enjoy this costume party. Dinner will be available in the Stepping Stones Cafe.
