North Hempstead to Host Popular “Spooky Walk”, October 28-29
“Not-So-Spooky Walk” on Oct. 30
North Hempstead, NY – Autumn has arrived and with it, the Town of North Hempstead is getting ready for some frightening nights, as Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board announce the dates for one of the most popular events of the year: Spooky Walk!
This year’s Spooky Walk will be a Zombie Apocalypse! Along with the undead, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, swamp monsters and many of their gruesome friends will inhabit the 12-acre park at Clark Botanic Garden on Friday, October 28, and Saturday, October 29, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The event will draw thousands of visitors, who will experience a spine-tingling walk through the realm of fear and fright that will be Clark Botanic Garden. The cost of admission is $5 per person. Friday night will have music by former American Idol contestant Bryce Larsen and Saturday night will feature live music by the band Kamellot.
Spooky Walk may not be suitable for young children, and minors must be accompanied by an adult. Younger children can enjoy the Not-So-Spooky Walk on Sunday, October 30, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Not-So-Spooky Walk will also include face painting, an obstacle course run by Unlimited Sports, Eric’s Reptile Edventures and storytelling by Williston Park Library. Not-So-Spooky Walk’s price of admission is $3 per person.
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for carnival rides. This year’s Spooky Walk and Not-So-Spooky Walk are sponsored by Dime Bank, Unlimited Sports, La Parma Italian Restaurant, The Village Flower Shoppe and Andrea’s Cake Shoppe.
