Submitted by Admin on Tue, 10/08/2013 - 21:50

With Halloween quickly approaching, the Town of N. Hempstead announced the dates for the Town’s most popular events:

Ghosts, ghouls, goblins, swamp monsters and many of their gruesome friends will visit Clark Botanic Garden and take over the 12-acre park. Visitors will be able to experience a smog-shrouded Containment Facility (Clark Botanic Garden) as they face impending doom of the Zombie Apocalypse!

Due to popular demand, the Town has added an additional night of Spooky Walk festivities. The annual Spooky Walk will take place on Thursday, October 24th through Saturday, October 26th from 6:00pm through 9:00pm. The event may not be suitable for young children and minors must be accompanied by an adult. New this year will be a group admission rate on October 24th, where groups of ten or more can purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $3 per person. The standard rate of admission for Spooky Walk is $5 per person.

Not-So-Spooky Walk, suitable for all ages, will be held on Sunday, October 27 from 12:00pm through 4:00pm. Not-So-Spooky Walk’s price of admission will be $3 per person.

Additionally, on October 25th, telescopes will be provided for star-gazing for children.

Featuring more than 12-acres of planted, well-manicured grounds, Clark Botanic Garden, located at 193 I.U. Willets Road in Albertson, is as perfect a setting as any for North Hempstead’s ultra-popular annual Halloween extravaganza.

North Hempstead Town officials are delighted to announce the return of the Annual Senior “Halloween Monster Bash”.

The event, sponsored by the Department of Community Services and the Department of Services for the Aging, attracts hundreds of seniors and features music, games, food and a costume contest.

Due to the unprecedented success of the event in the past few years, an additional day of festivities has been added. Seniors will be able to select from two different dates:

· Friday, October 25th from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Clinton G. Martin Park

· Tuesday, October 29th from 11:00am to 2:00pm at the N Hempstead Center.

Seating is limited and individuals must call (516) 869-6311 ahead to reserve a seat.
