Friday October 20th, 2017
We are looking for adult volunteers, families, organizations, dram clubs, civic groups, and businesses to help with our 9th Annual Halloween Event on Friday, October 20th, 2017. If you are interested in volunteering, having fun, and being part of the Halloween experience in Baker Park, please contact Nancy Adkins, Recreation Supervisor, now! You can email Nancy, or call her office phone at 301-600-6238.
We can help with ideas, some costuming, and props if needed. It can be as easy as walking through Baker Park in costume along the path by Carroll Creek or if you lean towards being on the social side of things you can interact with the tours. We always needs Halloween Characters throughout the park!
Do you juggle, play an instruments, have a special talent.....make that part of your Halloween Character, or are you quiet and like to jump out and scare unsuspecting victims....that is perfect also!
We are always looking for Tour Guides to take groups throughout the park (no scripts to learn) and for safety we have Tour Guide Assistants bringing up the back of each tour. We also need all potential Halloween characters, costume helpers, "Trunk or Treat" cars (limited number, in certain locations only, city provides candy for safety) to contact us as early as possibly.
Really, really, really love the whole Halloween experience??? Like to decorate, and have a special theme to go with your character.....we have 13 small pavilions by the pool area. You can adopt 1 for the night, decorate it, and hand out candy to tours. This is great for families,businesses, school projects, civic groups, girls scout and boy scout troops. Remember the city provides any candy given out the night of the event for all of our tours.
This is a perfect way to enjoy the Halloween experience and provide an unforgettable evening for your community! A fun, entertaining, and easy to do evening with the city. We hold the event on October 20th, before Halloween so volunteers can be open for their own activities closer to Halloween.
