Friday October 21
5:30pm-6:30pm: Social Hour / Bingo
Please come chat it up with our popular “Meet Your Neighbor” social hour event that includes tasty “Halloweenies” with buggar dip and chips (could be gross to the naked eye, however, it will be delicious). As usual we will serve iced tea, lemonade, or a thirst quenching variety of domestic and imported beers and California red and white wines. Soon after the “Happy Camper Hour” begins, the focus merges to our 100% payout Bingo: a fast paced affair with five cards for $5 (cash only).
Saturday October 22
10:00am–11:00am: Build your own stuffed animal!
Purchase your extra cute stuffy at the Reception Center for $10 (small) or $15 (large) and then enjoy the art of sharing your stuffy animal with our guests at the Event Center. Please buy your stuffy when you first arrive as this is a very popular craft event.
11:30am-1:00pm: Pumpkin Patch
Come join us at our pumpkin patch on the Quad to pick out your $3 sugar pumpkin for pumpkin decorating that will follow at the Event Center. You can paint your pumpkin, carve your pumpkin, use craft accessories to make a great face on your pumpkin. Please be ready to decorate your Pumpkin no later than 12:00 noon.
1:30pm-2:15pm: Donut bobbing
Join us on the Quad for bobbing for donuts. The goal is to eat an entire donut hanging from a string without using any hands. We’ll make it delicious with seasonal apple cinnamon donuts. YUM!! The first person in each age group to eat their entire donut wins.
2:15pm-3:00pm: Mummy contest
This is a 2-person activity (parent / child, spouses, siblings, etc). You will be turning your partner into a Mummy with toilet paper. There will be age group divisions as not all mummies are created equal. There will even be a division for kids and parents (kids wrapping parents, of course)! Winners of this activity will receive a Madison Vines T-shirt of their choice.
3:30pm-4:30pm: Site to site Trick or Treating
It’s time to dress up and trick or treat through the park. Guests please have your treats ready for the kids. Enjoy your collection of candy – be sure that your parents check your candy bag so they can eat their favorites (just kidding)!
5:00pm: Pasta Palooza Dinner
We will serve up a wicked witches hair spaghetti & “eye” meatball dinner with garlic bread and green salad. Dessert will be frightening, delicious “Dracula Dentures” (cookies with a fun filling). This meal will be a perfect fit for a good Halloween jolt. As always, we will offer lemonade, tea, a delicious red and white wines, and ice cold domestic and imported beers, including a domestic and an imported light beer. Advance Tickets Required. (Adults $12; Children 12 and under $8)
5:30pm-8:30pm Music with DJ and Costume Contest
We will welcome DJ Chip back to the Quad. Come dressed to scare and delight your fellow guests. We will have a costume contest with 3 age divisions – gift card prizes to the winners! Chip will play all your favorite tunes and any that you’d like to request. He will be playing all the good spooky music for all to enjoy. We will be announcing our costume contest winners as well as our site contest winners.
