Noccalula Falls Park and Campgrounds will host a Halloween Super Bash tomorrow, October 8 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The event is free for children age 3 and younger. Tickets are $5 for everyone age 4 and older. Ticket sales begin at 10 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.

There will be a fortune teller with fortune cookies, a photo booth, candy corn bowling, a pumpkin toss, a cupcake walk, ghost golf, inflatables, a tractor race, a potato sack race, a life-size Operation game, an “Enter the Jurassic” adventure inflatable and, of course, bobbing for apples.

There will be some new activities this year. Alabama Discovery Magazine will be helping kids make their own slime. Children’s favorite Big Sam the Balloon Man will be present.

Ronald McDonald and Princess Noccalula will also attend and visit with the children.

Children will be able to take train rides around the park and visit the petting zoo. Trick or treating will be available at various places throughout the park.

A human hamster ball ride will be available, but it will cost an additional $5.

The first 200 kids to enter the park will receive free bags.

Food vendors will be offering festival favorites to the crowd, including nachos, lemonade, kettle corn, Frios pops and fried Twinkies and Oreos.

Everyone is welcome to wear costumes and come join the fun.

“We love to have a community event that’s affordable and the kids can come out and enjoy it, have fun,” said Janet Tarrance, Administrative Supervisor for the City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Department. “It’s fun for the whole family, no matter how old you are.”

Tarrence says that she expects about 1000 to 1500 visitors this year. Last year the park had about 1500 visitors for the event.
