The Great Swamp Conservancy, Inc. (GSC) will host a non-scary day of fun for children and parents on Sunday October 28 from 11 AM to 4 PM. The Great Halloween Fun Days will feature Halloween displays, games, crafts and fun activities during daylight hours geared for children with accompanying adults. Each child in costume will receive a trick or treat prize. Every hour there will be an interactive story-telling presentation, and the breaking of a Halloween piñata. There will be a coloring contest with prizes awarded in each age group, along with stamping and face painting. A variety of games will test the children’s skills with prizes awarded, while the make-n-take crafts will encourage their creativity. Lunch and other refreshments can be purchased at the Lady Bug Café. Weather permitting; visitors can go on a tractor-drawn hayride. The GSC is collecting food for the Sherrill Food Pantry, so bring a can or more of food!
The Great Swamp Conservancy is located on North Main Street, three miles north of the village of Canastota. Suggested donation for admission to the Great Halloween Fun Day is $3.00 per child, ages 12 and under. Anyone accompanied by a child is free. Kids always have fun at the Great Swamp Conservancy.
