Free Events Open To Area Youth; Oneida Nation Dancers And Singers Included
The Green Bay Packers again this October will host the popular Halloween-themed events, Spooktacular Fun and the Haunted Concourse.
Spooktacular Fun is set for Saturday, Oct. 24, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Accessed through the Miller Lite Gate on the north end of Lambeau Field, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Haunted Concourse this year again is open for two days of thrills and is accessed through the Oneida Nation Gate on Lambeau Field's east side. It is open Friday, Oct. 23, from 7 to 11 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 24, for three sessions: 10 a.m. to noon, 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 10 p.m. Lines may be cut off prior to the end times to ensure no unnecessary waits.
The Haunted Concourse, designed for teens with a PG-13 rating, will be set in a darkened Lambeau Field concourse and feature scenes of high-tech shocks and horrors. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a guardian into the Haunted Concourse, and children under the age of 8 will not be permitted.
Spooktacular Fun this year will feature new entertainment attractions, including the Oneida Nation Dancers and Singers, a body contortionist and a pumpkin carver. The event's other interactive and entertaining musicians and magicians return, as do the very popular stilt walkers. Children also will have the opportunity to participate in face painting and other Halloween-themed arts and crafts.
"We're looking forward to having two days of the Haunted Concourse again this year," said Cathy Dworak, Packers manager of community outreach. ""Friday night is a great option for teens and families to stop in at the Haunted Concourse after cheering on their local high school football teams.
"Spooktacular also promises to again offer a lot of fun with our family-based entertainment, and this year we're excited to welcome the Oneida Nation Dancers and Singers to the event."
'Spooktacular Fun' is one in a series of free community events held each year by the Packers. Other events include an ecumenical Thanksgiving Day meal for area needy families, 'Project LEAP,' and 'Shindig at 1265.'
