Kidoinfo Spooky (but Not So Scary) Storytime & Haunted Art in the Park

spooky storytimePut on your costume! Kidoinfo is teaming up again with Jen Smith, Alison Paul and the rest of the summer storytime gang to bring you Halloween fun in Burnside Park! On Saturday, October 25th, from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM, hear guest authors and illustrators read their books and other spooky favorites.

Then at Haunted Art in the Park, kids can explore Alison Paul’s haunted house, and guest artist Ricky Katowicz (you can identify him by his scary Joker grill and mask) will join kids to spookify the park with Halloween art-making. Kids can learn about anatomy with a life-size skeleton, Ms. Bones, and guess the guts at the touch-and-feel Halloweeny table!

More fun: Explore the Spooky playground, get FREE Halloween facepainting with artist Heidi Born, and climb the haunted haystack!
