Noccalula Falls kicks off Halloween season with a bash


By Jacqueline Chandler/Messenger Correspondent

Noccalula Falls Park hosted the 4th Annual Halloween Super Bash on Oct. 11 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Numerous inflatables, games, ghost golf, train rides, and of course, plenty of trick or treating, were available throughout the park.

Food vendors on site included Jack’s, Tropical Sno, Frios Pops, Lookout Mountain Kettle Corn and Papa John’s, providing options for the whole family.

“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.”

The event was $5 for individuals age four and over, making the event an inexpensive way for families to enjoy a day at the park. According to Tarrance, over a thousand people were expected to attend this year’s event.

Local resident Kendra Bettus said it was a really nice event for the price. She liked all the bouncy houses and not having to worry about the candy because it’s safe. 

Six-year old Tessa Hood said she was enjoying the event very much. Her older brother Tyden added that “it was a fun time to be out with the family.” The same sentiments were echoed throughout the park by other children.
