Local churches offering Halloween alternative

Instead of ghosts and goblins, two local churches are partnering to offer a Halloween event for knights and princesses. Crossroads Church and the Word of Life Church have organized a medieval fair at the Collicutt Centre, 3031 30th Ave., on Oct. 31, from 5 to 10 p.m. Khristie Looy, one of the event’s organizers, said they want to provide a family friendly event.

Instead of ghosts and goblins, two local churches are partnering to offer a Halloween event for knights and princesses.

Crossroads Church and the Word of Life Church have organized a medieval fair at the Collicutt Centre, 3031 30th Ave., on Oct. 31, from 5 to 10 p.m. Khristie Looy, one of the event’s organizers, said they want to provide a family friendly event.

“We’re wanting an opportunity for families to come to an event that is family focused and family friendly,” said Looy. “Something that is not scary and just a really fun environment for families.”

Attendees will have full run of the Collicutt Centre, including the climbing walls. There are several other activities planned, including a giant maze made of more than 100 appliance-sized boxes, swimming, gymnastics and skyball. As well, although they close at 8 p.m., skating and the preschool park will be accessible to patrons.

Looy said there will also be a bubble wrap racetrack for the younger kids.

“It’s Fisher Price cars they drive on a bubble wrap track,” said Looy.

The admission cost of the event, $5 per person or $20 for a family, covers the cost of using the facility as well as the treat bag full of candy that children get when they leave.

“A lot of fun, live entertainment, just lots of activities to choose from,” said Looy. “It’s a very inexpensive opportunity to come and play.”

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Collicutt Centre.
