Halloween fun for all at Stateline’s Kahle Community Center
If you go ...
What: Halloween Carnival
When: Oct. 31, 4 p.m.
Where: Kahle Community Center
For a bit of Halloween family fun, head out to Kahle Community Center on Monday, Oct. 31. With more than just trick-or-treating, it’s an event the kids are sure to enjoy.
“It’s basically an open Halloween carnival — we’ve got lots of games and more,” Douglas County recreation supervisor Traci Dill said.
The event, sponsored by Kiwanis Lake Tahoe and hosted by Douglas County Parks and Recreation, lasts from 4-6:30 p.m. Spend some time together as a family playing classic fall festival games and reveling in the Halloween spirit.
While activities are geared toward younger children, all ages are welcome to the carnival and are encouraged to dress in costume. Entry is free, and children are given a strand of tickets upon arrival. Tickets are used for access to food, as well as participation in games and activities.
“We have a bunch of different games: a bean bag toss, Plinko — where you drop a coin and it has to get to the other side, a whiffle ball toss, typical carnival games. There’s also a cake walk, bounce house and ring toss,” Dill said.
There are approximately 10 activities in all, and children are encouraged to bring their own bags or carriers to trick-or-treat at a handful of classrooms.
Kahle’s Halloween Carnival has offered families a night of spooktacular fun for close to a decade, and hundreds of people join in the festivities each year. With candy, “boo-ritos” and other kid-friendly food, it’s a great — and safe — way to celebrate the holiday’s early afternoon prior to trick-or-treating in your neighborhood later in the evening. It’s also a perfect method to introduce young children to the highlight of October.
Kahle Community Center is located at 236 Kingsbury Grade in Stateline. Additional information is available by calling the venue at 775-586-7271.
