Families will have an opportunity to participate in an outdoor Halloween event, as the City of Fishers’ annual Boo Bash celebration will take place this year.
Boo Bash will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 31 on Municipal Drive in downtown Fishers.
“We are really excited about Boo Bash this year,” Fishers Parks Director Sarah Sandquist said. “We are going to close the entire Municipal Circle and move vendors out to the perimeter of the circle and Central Green and space them 20 to 30 feet apart. There will be plenty of spacing with a one-way trick-or-treating trail and multiple entrances.
“When you enter, you are only directed one direction, and we are hoping to limit crowd mixing and also limit crowd queuing up and waiting.”
Registration isn’t required. Approximately 50 to 60 vendors will be on-site, including Fishers businesses and nonprofits with creatively decorated booths. Vendors will hand out candy and non-candy items.
Masks are required.
“We encourage everyone to think about how a mask can mix in with their costume,” Sandquist said.
A photographer will be at the entrance taking pictures that families can download after the event. There also will be an online costume contest.
“It’s pretty fun to put a photo up on the Fishers Parks Facebook page, and we compile all of them and have a contest,” Sandquist said. “We also have a pumpkin-carving event on Oct. 27 at Central Green.”
Families can carve pumpkins for free. Tools and pumpkins will be provided. Registration is required for the pumpkin carving and is available at playfishers.com/register.
“You can choose to take (the pumpkin) with you or add it to the pumpkin display for Boo Bash and then take it with you after Boo Bash,” Sandquist said.
