Rock Garden in Aldrich Park

Ghosts, witches, and creatures of the night
Don’t miss the call of Halloween fright
Come one, come all in the threads of the season
If you miss this bash, a zombie apocalypse better be your reason

Be at the Rock Garden in Aldrich Park – don’t be late
From noon to 1pm to meet your fate
As witches and warlocks in all shapes and sizes
Gather round the tombstones to compete for prizes

Come spooky or growling with whimpers and wails
Come in full costume. Here are the haunting details:


Come visit the DIY Selfie Station!!!
Share on
And show your Imagination!

Gather around the lair
