The City of Noblesville has announced it’s upcoming Halloween activities, which includes a family Halloween party, trick-or-treating and pumpkin-carving and costume contests.
Family Halloween party
The Noblesville Parks and Recreation Dept. and the Hamilton County Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs invites families to a fun Halloween party outdoors at Forest Park Shelter 5. The party is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 28. Guests are invited to come dressed for the weather and in their favorite Halloween costume while trick-or-treating at local vendor booths. There also will be plenty of outdoor activities including games, dancing, music, hayrides, a campfire and star-gazing. Guests are invited to stay after the party for an outdoor family movie (weather permitting) at 8:30 p.m. Organizers are still working on which title will be shown.
Residents may submit a photo of a carved pumpkin to be judged by the parks staff. Finalists will be selected to compete in the live-carving contest during the event at 6:45 p.m. and will be given a pumpkin and 20 minutes to carve their best image/face. Participants will need to bring their own tools. A grand prize will be awarded to the winner.
There will be five age groups: infant to 3 years old, ages 4 to 8 and 9 to 18, adult and family. Residents are asked to take a picture in their costume prior to the event. Finalists will appear on stage at the costume contest at 7:30 p.m. Prizes will be given to all finalists. Participants should include the age category when entering.
To be considered for either contest, residents must submit their photo to Noblesville Parks via any social media platform (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram). Photos can be directly sent using #NvilleFamilyHalloweenParty or emailed to email@example.com. Pictures will be shared on the Noblesville Parks Facebook photo albums page. Entry deadline is 5 p.m. Oct. 24.
