OREGON – Are you looking for Halloween fun for kids and canines? The Oregon Park District has lots of fun planned.

The Oregon Park District would like to invite families in the community to participate in our Halloween activities both indoors and out.

There is nothing better than parading pooches in costume! Families and their four-legged friends will enjoy the 6th Annual Wiggly Field Howl'oween Canine Costume Contest. Purchase a costume or get creative and make your own costume. Make yourself a matching costume and have twice the fun.

Bring your pooch for the doggie parade at Wiggly Field on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 5:30 p.m. Judging will follow with awards to the winning canines. Categories for judging include: Best Purchased Costume, Best Homemade Costume and Best Group (multiple dogs or people/pooch costumes). Spectators are welcome. However, all participating dogs must have a Wiggly field permit and all park rules and regulations will apply. We can't wait to see you on Oct. 24. If inclement weather arises, the event will be rescheduled. Check the Oregon Park District facebook page for details.

Put on your Halloween costume and come to Nash Recreation Center for the annual Halloween Carnivals on Thursday, Oct. 26. The carnivals are a safe indoor opportunity for fun and games. Try your luck and skill at a variety of different carnival games and win fun candy and prizes.

Each child will receive 12 free tickets to play and additional game tickets may be purchased at the door for 25 cents each. Raffle tickets can also be purchased for the chance to win many great gifts donated by local businesses.

The pre-K Carnival is from 10-11:30 a.m. and the K-5th grade Carnival is from 3:30-5 p.m.

Join us for Halloween fun with the Oregon Park District. For more information stop by Nash, or call 732-3101. You can also email Debbie@oregnopark.org for more information.
