Kick off your Halloween fun this year with the Westgate Neighbors Association (WNA) and the Friends of Westgate Park (FoWP) as they partner for the fifth annual Mums and Mummies event on Oct. 15 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. at the Westgate Park Shelterhouse.
Mums and Mummies is a free festival of Belgian 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.
Gabe Cantrell, WNA vice president and event co-chair, said, “Kids of all ages – both two- and four-legged – are invited to come 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 Belgian 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.”
