Falling into fun at the Westlake Rec

Fall festivities abound at the Westlake Recreation Center, including the annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Hunt on Oct. 11.

Fall has arrived and the Westlake Recreation Department is ready to go. Three special events are on the calendar so stop on in and register before the leaves fall and you are left holding the rake!

First up is our second annual Spooktacular Scarecrow Contest. For $20 you will receive the wood frame and straw. The rest is up to you. Deadline to register is Oct. 1, and then on Saturday, Oct. 4, you will stop in and pick up your supplies from the Recreation Department. Take them home and get your scarecrow together. Please return your assembled scarecrow to the Recreation Department by Oct. 16 for display and judging.

The annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Hunt will be held on Saturday, Oct. 11, from 1-4 p.m. on the grounds of the Westlake Recreation Center. Come for this fun-filled festival for ages 9 and younger with a pumpkin hunt, face painters, hay rides, refreshments and more fun and games than you can imagine.

Following last year’s Tales from the Trail is the new Trick or Treat Trail. On Saturday, Oct. 18, starting at 7 p.m. and lasting until 9 p.m., participants can walk the Trick or Treat Trail on the grounds of the Westlake Recreation Center. The trail will have numerous decorated areas and scary scenes. Along the way families can trick-or-treat at various stations.  Once you have made it through the Trick or Treat Trail, you can then take a hayride back to the main staging area.

All family members must be registered in order to participate. Cost is $2 for residents and $3 for non-residents. Please register in advance, however, we will take registrations the night of. We encourage all participants to dress up as well and try to scare our ghosts and goblins. All areas are appropriate for all ages.
