Halloween is around the corner and Reynoldsburg will again offer several spooky activities for families.
The Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department will host its 2nd annual Mother-Son Halloween Costume Dance from 6:30-8:30 p.m., Oct. 20 at the Reynoldsburg Senior Center, 1520 Davidson Drive.
Participants must pre-register for the event, and space is limited, said Donna Bauman, director of the parks and recreation department.
The fee is $33 per couple, plus $12 per additional son for Reynoldsburg residents. The cost to non-residents is $43 per couple, plus $12 per additional son.
For information, call (614) 322-6806.
Community Halloween Party
This year’s Community Halloween Party will take place from 6-9 p.m., Oct. 22, at JFK Park, 7232 E. Main St.
Sponsored by the Reynoldsburg Community Association and Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department, the party is for Reynoldsburg residents and includes games, food and live entertainment. Kids are encouraged to come dressed in costumes.
Halloween Night at the Museum
The Reynoldsburg-Truro Historical Society is hosting a Halloween Night at the Museum.
The event encourages families to come explore the society’s museum, located at 1485 Jackson St., at night – adding to the eeriness of walking on creaking floors through an 1800s house.
“Having it open at night for a couple hours and bringing the kids through, I think it will be a great Halloween activity,” said Mary Stoots, a volunteer with the historical society.
The free event, scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Oct. 25, will include trick-or-treat, a children’s activity and more, Stoots said.
“We wanted to do something different than our traditional open house to get the children involved so they can see the facility and see the history of Reynoldsburg while they are there,” she said.
Children must be accompanied by an adult, and are welcome to dress up in their favorite Halloween costumes.
The city of Reynoldsburg’s city-wide Trick-or-Treat will take place from 6-8 p.m., Oct. 31.
