Halloween promises to be particularly spook-tacular in Richmond this year.
From Wild Things at Richmond Nature Park to pumpkin decorating at Hamilton Community, there’s plenty of opportunity to display your creative side. Or enjoy skating at Minoru Arenas in your costume or go trick or treating along the Britannia Shipyards National Historic site boardwalk, and listen to spook-tacular stories at Richmond Public Library’s Brighouse branch.
“These low cost or free events (more than 20 in all) offered by the City and its partners continue to build a great sense of community spirit,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “Richmond continues to be a leader in providing high quality and safe Halloween experiences for all ages.”
Remember to cap off all the fun Halloween night, Oct. 31. There are five free community fireworks displays to choose from:
• Halloween Fireworks Festival, 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. at Minoru Park. Music, dance demonstrations, entertainers, children’s activities, inflatable corn maze, trick-or-treating, fire juggling and a spectacular fireworks finale at 8:30 p.m.
• Hugh Boyd Park (West Richmond) at 8:15 p.m.
• McLean Park (Hamilton) at 8:15 p.m.
• South Arm Park at 8:15 p.m.
