Games, prizes, face painting, balloon animals, magic wand making, dragon egg painting, a Halloween maze and a Haunted House for those who dare are just a few of the things happening at the Robson Performing Arts Center. The carnival takes place on October 31st, November 1st and November 2nd, from 6pm to 9pm. The Haunted House stays open until 10 pm. Games start at just 25 cents where visitors can win tickets for prizes.
These events are a fundraiser for the children’s theatre camp, Imagine Action Theatre that is held in the summer at the Robson Performing Arts Center. All children are welcome to participate in the camp no matter their economic status. “That’s why we fundraise throughout the year,” states Executive Director, Ruby Quinn, “because all children are welcome to attend and have fun creating a show and making friends.”
There is a costume contest each night so visitors are welcome to come out as their favorite character. Bring by your carved pumpkin to the Robson PAC for the pumpkin carving contest. Little ones can also go to the Fun Time Maze where games are geared just for them. And for the brave visitors, the Haunted House titled “Tonight’s Nightmare” has three scare levels and takes place on the main stage of the theatre. The Haunted House is $5 per person.
“This year we’re adding crafts to the carnival,” exclaims Quinn, “and kids can create their own magic wands, paint a dragon egg complete with a dragon inside and make magic potions.” She continues, “We wanted a safe and fun place for parents and children to come and enjoy the season together.” For questions, call the Robson PAC at 918-923-4290.
