Stettler kids got an early taste of thrills and chills at the Spooktacular Halloween Party last weekend.

The party, hosted at the Royal Canadian Legion hall on Saturday, Oct. 25, attracted more than 150 kids, parents and grandparents with a mix of spooky music, crafts and activities.

Rainbow-coloured light shone on the dance floor, while classic tunes like “Love Potion No. 9” played in the background.

There were also bouncy castles, snacks, crafts for the kids to made, and “sensory tables.” These included concoctions like “ghost mud,” a mixture of toilet paper and Ivory soap that was set in a large container on the floor, where kids could stick their hands inside.

Another mixture was billed as “monster eyes and goblin drool” — in actuality, just water beads floating in liquid.

The hall was decorated with cobwebs, bats and other terrifying trimmings, and a fog machine added to the overall ambience.

Renaye Pickett, who organized the party with Lisa Goodkey and Stephanie Nixon, said the event was a success, with almost all available tickets sold.

Proceeds from the party were donated towards the Stettler Kinette Club playground project in West Stettler Park; a total of $770 was raised.

“We’re playing on doing it yearly,” said Pickett, adding that a different beneficiary would be chosen each year. “We’re always open to suggestions.”
