Families Celebrate Halloween Early at Spooktacular
COLUMBIA - Halloween is approaching quickly but many families started celebrating today at the Missouri Children's Museum Halloween Spooktacular.
More than 60 children and parents visited the Museum today to enjoy Halloween in a new way. Kids joined in on spooky activities such as eyeball hunting, costume, contest and a creative pumpkin challenge.
Parents say the Halloween Spooktacular is a good way for the whole family to enjoy Halloween without going door-to-door. "I think its a great idea because the kids can explore, you don't have to be right there with them but you can enjoy they're having a good time," parent Sue Auferheide said. "And there's not just the Halloween activities, they've got the sand pit and everything else that the kids can still do. so they'll have a blast you don't have to chase them door to door."
The Spooktacular gave some families a chance to celebrate the holiday without trick or treating door to door. The kids didn't walk away empty handed though. Each child got a goodie bag with Halloween treats to satisfy those sweet teeth.
