This year’s family-friendly seasonal event is bigger and better than ever! Begun by Chris Shackelford back in 2001, The Jax Halloween KidFest has been a free community service for 13 years. 2015 will be no different with many traditional aspects and several new activities for all ages! Come for the tots, come for the frightening fun, come for the games and make-it-yourself workshops: Sunday, October 25, 1 to 4 PM all around The Jax. Returning from years past will be face painting, fortune-telling, ghoulish garb, pumpkin painting, and sweet as well as savory treats and refreshments. There will be a Costume Parade (possibly 2 of them!), and the FREAKY PHOTO BOOTH! Children can pose before the freaky set-up and have their photos taken — and then will be able to hand-decorate the photos to use as personalized door signs for their rooms, or as seasonal cards, or as gifts for grandma and grandpa. Another new activity is a workshop to hand-make stuffed fabric pumpkins. Whatever participants make in this special workshop can be taken home with them at the end of the day. So mark your calendars and bring the whole family for costumed fun and games! Countless of your neighbors and friends are already involved, including volunteers from Ferrum and Radford Universities, and our community’s generous business sponsors.
