JAMESTOWN – The 34th Annual Citywide Halloween Fun-Fest will be on Wednesday, October 31, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the former Allen Park Ice Rink.
The event has been planned to offer a safe, fun and no-cost alternative to trick-or-treating door to door. The event is for children 12 years and under. Individuals over 12 must be accompanied by a child, and children under 6 years must be accompanied by a parent or an adult.
The evening will feature games, a haunted house, refreshments, two costume judging contests (at 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.), and musical entertainment by Take 2. There will be two grand prize winners who will receive bicycles donated by the Jamestown Cycle Shop.
This year’s Fun Fest is presented free of charge through the generosity of the City of Jamestown, Allen Park Women’s Club, Anderson’s Farms, Artone Manufacturing, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, Fessenden, Laumer, & DeAngelo; Honest John’s Pizza, Jamestown Board of Public Utilities, Jamestown Bowling Company, Jamestown Cycle Shop, Media One Group, Morton Club, Oh Snap! Visuals; Southern Tier Supply, Starbucks, and Wegmans.
