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 eighth annual Mums and Mummies event on Sunday, Oct. 10 from 1 to 3:30 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, children and adults will take place at 2 p.m. Other activities include games, trunk-or-treat, food, crafts, and a mum sale benefiting Friends of Westgate Park. The Dancing Witches of Westgate will also be returning, with a live performance scheduled at 2:30 p.m.
Melissa Rumer and Tori Catheline, event co-chairs, say kids of all ages – both two- and four-legged – are invited to show off their Halloween costumes and enjoy a fun day in Westgate Park.
Michael Blake, WNA president, said, “We invite the entire community to stop by the park and help us kickstart the Halloween season in Westgate. We were forced to cancel the event in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions and have taken time since then to come up with alternative ways to host the event with consideration to COVID-19 safety. While this year will still not be our traditional event, we are excited to bring back Mums and Mummies, give back to our community and enjoy the day with our neighbors and friends.”
