All Hallows Eve Celebration
This is a fun, family-friendly activity for all ages and is held whether it's raining or not. This year's event is from 6-8 pm on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Volunteer Gateway Park right across the street from the Wauna Fire Station.
Don't forget to wear your costume! There will be a costume contest & prizes!
Slippery and slimy!! Ooey and Gooey!! Have a wicked good time touching creepy things in our Halloween touch boxes!
Take a walk through the spooky pavilion where the Red Barn leadership youth group will be to help you have a "hauntingly" good time! Roast a S'more over the campfire and have a cup of hot cocoa. You can even get your face painted to glow under the black lights in our photo booth!
Try your apple aiming skills at the apple launcher. We have apple bobbing too! Enjoy spooky fun music and dancing by a local DJ and then ... it's time for Trunk or Treat with North West Mopar Mafia!
6 to 7:40 pm
7:50 pm - Trunk or Treat begins!
Thank you to all the volunteers who help make this happen. Thank you also to KP Baptist Fellowship for hosting a craft and to Bruce Titus Tacoma Subaru for being a sponsor last year!
How to make your carved pumpkin last longer ...
The intact skin of a pumpkin protects it until you carve it. But then various organisms (fungi, bacteria, molds, protozoans, insects - also known as "those little buggers") can invade your gourd and start to break it down. Oxygen in the air also breaks down the pumpkin through oxidation and simple dehydration (drying out) will begin the moment the pumpkin is carved.
All of this will turn your carved young happy pumpkin face into a sad old man in a few days time! To keep your pumpkin from aging, we need to do two things: sterilize the pumpkin's carved surfaces (kill fungi, mold, bacteria, bugs), and seal the surfaces to prevent drying and to keep out new "little buggers."
Here are the simple steps:
