About This Event
Springfield’s premier mixed-use community is again hosting Parties in the Dark—its signature pre-Halloween festivities for the whole family. And those who attend this year’s event are invited to stick around for a special outdoor screening of the fan-favorite flick that emerges victorious in our Facebook poll.
Farmers Park is excited to celebrate the countdown to October’s most frightfully fun night with candy, crafts and games to boot. Sponsored by Guaranty Bank and 92.9 The Beat, Parties in the Dark kicks off Thursday, October 25, at 5 p.m. Attendees will want to arrive early for an array of activities that includes candy corn bowling, face painting and costume contests for two-legged guests and their four-legged friends. Tickets are…totally not needed. This evening-long extravaganza is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by Sun Solar, our inaugural Movie Night presentation begins at 7 p.m. in the grassy area next to Aviary’s patio. And here’s the best part: We’ll be projecting the movie onto the side of our easternmost building in high def with audiovisual support from Pitt Technology and AVMAN.
Be sure to bring your appetite. Team Taco will have food trucks on site, and Aviary will be serving up craveworthy cocktails to parched patrons. And then there’s the candy. There. Will. Be. So. Much. Candy.
Here’s a closer look at all the fun you’ll have at Parties in the Dark:
• Live music by We Three Thieves
• Bounce house, candy corn bowling, face painting and bean bag toss
• Costume contests for kids, adults and pets
• Caramel apple station and cookie decorating
