The staff at Noccalula Falls Park invites everyone out Oct. 13 for family fun and a safe, if somewhat spooky, afternoon at the Halloween Super Bash at the Falls.

Falls Supervisor Janet Tarrance said the City of Gadsden Parks and Recreation Department wanted to offer a child-friendly Halloween event with Halloween-themed fun that is not too intense for children.

Tarrance said this is the third year the city has hosted the Halloween event. Last year, she said, there were between 800 and 1,000 who attended, and the Parks and Recreation staff hope to have that many or more this year.

This year the event features some new inflatables and games, fortune readings, tattoos, train rides, a cupcake walk (with cupcakes from Ms. Mary’s Bakery), ghost golf and trick or treating around the park.

“This year we’ve added the costume parade,” Tarrance said, giving children a chance to come show off their costumes. Zumbatronic – “a really fun dance and exercise class for kids” – is another new feature. Children ages 4 to 12 are invited to participate in the class at 3 p.m.

Admission is $5 for children four and older; kids three and under get in free. Ticket sales will begin at 2 p.m. and the Parade of Costumes will begin at 2:30 p.m. Gates will open at 3 p.m. and games will continue until  7 p.m.

There will be vendors selling kettle corn, fried Oreos, funnel cake and other treats, Tarrance said.

Vendors will set their own prices for items they sell.

This City of Gadsden event is also sponsored by Sarrell Dental and Z93.1.
