Boo Fest . . .


Saturday, October 26 Halloween meets Day of the Dead in this fun-filled event that is anything but creepy! Find out how Mexico celebrates their loved ones who have passed. Put on a cool costume & join the MaskParade (we'll crown this year's King & Queen BOOfest!) or just cheer it on - parade begins at Lillian Webb Park at 4:30pm & goes down Jones into Thrasher Park. There, Aztec dancers will swirl & stomp on stage until 5:30, when it's time to head downtown for early trick or treating, hay rides & lots of ghoulish fun! Check out Sally Toole's ghost tours, the adult costume contest in Iron Horse & tequila tasting at Zapata's, plus lots of other fun & crazy things to do for all ages into the evening.

    Kind of unorganized. No one to ask around where & when things were occuring. Could have had signage at pavillion at Thrasher Park directly people what is happening on hourly basis, etc. Made it for the parade part but nothing going on either park for the hour before so was confused. The dancers at the park after parade were great!
