Richmond Beach Halloween Carnival open to all

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Ghosts, Goblins and Games, oh yeah! This fall marks the 32nd anniversary of Richmond Beach Community Association’s spooktacular Halloween Carnival.

On Saturday, October 27, from 3:00 to 7:00pm, at Syre Elementary School, 19545 12th Avenue NW, children of all ages and abilities and their parents can scare up some fun at the carnival where they will find traditional carnival games with prizes, inflatables, haunted house, raffle, food and more.

Kids love to show off their costumes for this event; parents are encouraged to dress up too!

Parking is limited, so please walk or carpool if possible. Tickets are two for $1 and may be purchased with cash or credit cards. All games and attractions are paid for with tickets; food can be purchased with tickets or cash. Most games are one ticket, larger attractions are two tickets and food prices vary.

Soft opening for kids with special needs
Children who have a particular way of seeing, hearing, moving, feeling, thinking or perceiving the world are often not comfortable attending functions such as this due to the commotion of large crowds and noises.

To make the carnival accessible, kids with special needs and their families will have the gym to themselves for one hour from 2:00 to 3:00pm to play carnival games in a less busy environment while also allowing any modifications possible to meet their skills and abilities. Their parents and/or caretakers are invited to volunteer at the carnival and use the special skills and knowledge they possess to staff the carnival games during this hour.

Volunteers needed
We need over 150 volunteer people, families and businesses to make this event happen. Please consider volunteering for at least 1.5 hours, but you can sign up for more than one shift!

We need at least two people for each block, preferably one of which is an adult. More people are fine—just add your family/business name in both spots (if you have more than two people helping). Follow this link to volunteer to set up, staff a booth or cleanup: HERE.

We also need volunteers to help move props/games to and from the storage unit and to help construct and tear down the haunted house. Follow this link to sign up to help with these tasks: HERE

If you have questions, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Adrienne Houck.

Raffle donations needed
Contact Chris Beck to donate an item for the raffle or cash to purchase prizes. Gifts appropriate for kids or adults are gladly accepted. Anyone can donate an item and will be acknowledged in the Richmond Beach Community News.

Cakes needed
Contact Liza Ragan to donate a cake for the cake walk or simply bring it with you when you come to the carnival. Covered cakes can be delivered to the stage.

Visit Richmond Beach Carnival for more information about the event.

As you can see, there are many ways in which to participate in this community-building event. Find the one that works best for you and call today to volunteer. Above all else, bring your family to the carnival for a good time, to mingle with friends and neighbors and to strengthen relationships in our community.
