The 28th annual citywide Halloween Fun Fest will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the former Allen Park Ice Rink.
The event has been planned to offer a safe alternative to trick-or-treating door to door. The event is for children 12 years of age and under. Individuals over 12 years of age must be accompanied by a child, and children under 6 years must be accompanied by a parent or an adult.
The evening will feature games, a haunted house, refreshments, costume judging contests at 6:45 p.m. and 7:45 p.m., and musical entertainment by Emerald City. There will be two grand prize winners who will receive bicycles donated by Jamestown Cycle Shop.
The fun fest is sponsored by the city of Jamestown, Media One Group, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, Fessenden, Laumer & DeAngelo; Jamestown Cycle Shop, Honest John's, Wegmans, Morton Club, Kendall Club PBA, Big Lots, Dunkin' Donuts, Farm Fresh Foods, Tops Friendly Markets, and Pepsi of Jamestown.
Students from the Jamestown High School Key Club and Jamestown High School National Honor Society helped fill candy bags. Other volunteers and members of the Parks Commission will also work on the event.
