For young witches and werewolves, the Candy Crawl will be a sugar-fueled good time. Trick-or-treating will run from 6:00-9:00 PM throughout the shopping center, providing a safe and, *ahem*, warm environment for optimal candy collection. As always, trick-or-treating is a free activity. While here families can enter the Halloween 4 Hospice Costume contest at JCPenney Court anytime from 4:00-8:00 PM. Entries are $3 per person or $5-7 per group, with all proceeds going to support Missoula’s Hospice Care Foundation. Top prizes will be awarded in each age category, as well as for the best group themes.
Boo ‘n Brew
Just in case the grown-up goulies and ghosts were feeling left out, there’s the Boo ‘n Brew from 7:00-10:30 PM. Located inside the space next to Lucky’s Market, the Boo ‘n Brew will feature a beer garden, food trucks, and a world-class aerial acrobat show, plus live music by The Josh Farmer Band, yard games, music by DJ Sunny, and a video-gaming lounge by GameStop. There is no charge for admission. Families are welcome, however adults over 21 must present an ID to enjoy the beer garden.
Poppen notes, “We have this great warehouse-style space next to Lucky’s Market and we thought to ourselves, ‘hey, let’s throw a big ‘ol Halloween bash in there!’ There’ll be a little something fun for everyone.”
