Free Halloween event suits all ages

Cranbrook Alliance Church to host Halloween Hoedown on Oct. 31

Let’s hoot and holler for Halloween!

The Cranbrook Alliance Church is taking a different spin on the annual celebration by hosting a Halloween Hoedown.

The completely free family event is for all ages of children and is intentionally un-scary for the littlest littlies.

From 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, visit the Alliance Church gymnasium (shared with Kootenay Christian Academy) for an afternoon of fun.

A hillbilly band will keep up with tempo, while young ones take part in horseback rides, cookie decorating, games and face painting.

There will be a petting zoo with goats, rabbits, ducks and sheep, clowns performing tricks, and popcorn to snack on.

Last year, the event draw about 200 people, and there’s room for more. You can come for the entire event, or drop in before trick-or-treating.
