Over two hundred children and their families attended the event that included arts and crafts, an obstacle course, storytime and trick or treating.
AMHERST-A good time was had by all Saturday morning at the Maggie’s Place Spook-A-Rama held in conjunction with Halloween at Spring Street Academy.
“I think we had more this year than we had last year,” stated Maggie’s Place Parent Education coordinator Karen LeBlanc, aka, Princess Fiona Shrek, on Saturday.
“We should hit about 200 kids,” she added. “Everyone is smiling and having a good time. And some of the costumes are really good,” she exclaimed. “You can see the thought that has been put into them.” About 175 kids attended last year.
Prior to trick or treating, ghosts and treat bags were made, as well as marble rolled spider webs, ghost guts and witch’s brew. There was also an obstacle course.
Afterwards, children enjoyed story time while eating some of their treats.
