I want to support SPARC!    Give Now

Saturday, October 31st from 4:00-5:30pm

Open to all!

Join us for a FREE family-friendly, socially-distanced Halloween parade on Saturday, October 31 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm in the SPARC parking lot (2106 N Hamilton St). Arrive when you can and leave when you need to! We hope you’ll swing by for a few minutes of fun before embarking on your other Halloween adventures.

Dress up as a family and prepare to dazzle as we safely celebrate this most-theatrical of holidays! This outdoor open house-style event gives families and young people the chance to visit with SPARC teachers, participate in a scavenger hunt, play games, show off costumes on a runway, snap festive photos, and collect goodies along the way.

Safety first! SPARC will enact the following precautions for this event:

  1. All goodies will be safely packaged before the event and handled only by people wearing masks and gloves.
  2. Youth will collect their goody bags one at a time from a table. Items will not be passed directly from hand to hand.
  3. Goody bags will be nut-free.
  4. Face coverings are required for attendance, and traditional Halloween masks are not allowed. (See if you can find a fun way to incorporate your face covering into your costume! What kind of face covering would your character like to wear?)
  5. SPARC will pace entry into the parking lot to ensure that folks are able to maintain a social distance of six feet from one another while at the event. This may mean that your group will need to wait briefly in a distanced line upon arrival.
  6. The route through the parking lot will be one-way-only, and activity stations will be set with social distancing in mind.
  7. Activity stations will be no-contact and will only serve one group at a time.
  8. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event.

No RSVP is required, but we do need your help to make this event happen! If you’re able to make a small donation of items, you can click here to view SPARC’s wish list for our goody bags.
