Brownsburg hosts Halloween events

BROWNSBURG — It’s time again for little ghouls and goblins to take to the sidewalks while they knock on doors and ask for treats here this Halloween season.

There are a variety of Halloween-related events going on this weekend, including a children’s costume contest and puppet show at Arbuckle Acres Park and a Haunted Police Station on Halloween night.

Along with the final weekend of haunted hayrides, the Haunts of Hidden River Haunted Hayrides committee is hosting a puppet show and children’s costume contest at 8 p.m. Oct. 30 in a tent at the park.

Cindy Hyatt, one of the event organizers, said there is no cost to attend the puppet show and costume contest.

“It’s all free,” she said. “They just need moms and dads to be with (the children). We sign them up according to their age ... we just take them all up on the stage and the judges will look at them. This year, we’ve got it little bit different, changed it a little bit. There is an up to 3-year-old category, then 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12.”

Hyatt said each costume will be judged on four categories: Originality, creativity, effort, and crowd-reaction.

“They’re darling,” she said of the costumed children. “Some of the moms really put a lot of time into it.”

The puppet show will be offered at 7:30 p.m., before the costume contest, and again afterwards at 8:30 p.m.

Heidi Shackleford with Melchior Marionettes will be presenting the puppet show again this year. Ray’s Trash Service and Monster Mini Golf in Avon are sponsoring the events. For more information about the contest and show, visit the website at www.hauntedhayrides.org.

Also, for the 20th year, the Brownsburg Police Department will present the Haunted Police Station from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 31 at the station at 31 N. Green St.
