Kick off your Halloween fun this year with the Westgate Neighbors Association (WNA) and the Friends of Westgate Park (FoWP) as they partner for their seventh annual Mums and Mummies event on Oct. 20 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Westgate Park Shelterhouse.
Mums and Mummies is a free festival of fall garden mums and Halloween fun with something for every member of the family to enjoy. A costume contest for pets will take place at 2:15 p.m., followed by a contest for children at 2:45 p.m. Other activities include a baked goods sale, games and activities, trunk-or-treat, fireside stories, food, raffles and a mum sale. New this year will be a performance by the Dancing Witches of Westgate.
Melissa Rumer, event co-chair, said, “Kids of all ages – both two- and four-legged – are invited to show off their Halloween costumes and enjoy what we hope is a beautiful day in Westgate Park. Each year this event gets bigger and better, and this year we’ve added a few surprises that are sure to delight. ”
Andrew Christmas, FoWP president and event co-chair added, “We invite everyone to come out and enjoy the park as it is dressed up for fall. We’ll have hundreds of colorful garden mums in full-bloom, along with a mum sale and raffle, and bake sale benefitting Westgate Park through Friends of Westgate Park. This event is another example of our great partnership with WNA and the great community we have in Westgate.”
