TWO DAYS OF POPULAR HAUNTED CONCOURSE OFFERED, OCT. 10-11
Free Event Open To Area Youth
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. 11, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Accessed through the Miller Brewing Company Gate, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Haunted Concourse this year is open for two days of thrills and is accessed through the Oneida Nation Gate. It is open Friday, Oct. 10, from 8 to 11 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 11, 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.
"We're very excited to offer two days of the Haunted Concourse this year," said Cathy Dworak, Packers manager of community outreach. "Because we had such a great response the last two years, we wanted to add the Friday night option for people as well. Families and teens can stop over after dinner or after cheering on their high school football team for a late-night thrill."
Spooktacular Fun this year will feature a new attraction in the parking lot adjacent to the Atrium for younger attendees: a hay bale maze. The event's other interactive and entertaining activities return to the Atrium, including sing-along music, a mime, a magician, stilt walkers and other roaming entertainers. Children also will have the opportunity to participate in face painting and other Halloween-themed arts and crafts.
In a related offering, the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame will offer special half-priced admission for children (ages 11 and under) from Oct. 11 through Nov. 1. The special rate, $2.50, is only available for individual, on-site sales.
'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.'
