Fall Fun at Bay Rec

Susan Ballard from the Bay Village Branch Library tells a story at Bay Rec's Halloween Safety Day.

Everyone at the Bay Village Recreation Department would like to thank all the kids and parents who came to our Halloween Safety Day! It was a huge success with an attendance of more than 150. Kids learned about Halloween safety all while having fun listening to stories, making crafts, playing games and getting their faces painted. Everyone left with a pumpkin in hand, candy in their bags and a smile on their face. We hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!
