The annual Spooktacular Halloween event at Zanewood Recreation Center will take place on Saturday, October 29, 2 – 5 pm.

The past two years, this event has been held outdoors along the pathways around Zanewood Recreation Center and School and has been a huge success with kids collecting goodies from booths along the way!

This is where the Brooklyn Park community comes together… We are looking for businesses and community organizations to participate in this event in two ways.

  1. Host a decorated booth including a table, decorations, and hand out goodies /candy for 1,000 + youth
  2. Be an event sponsor with a monetary donation

    • $500 name and logo on the sponsorship sign and promotions going out through social media and email delivery system

This event will be held outdoors and will only be cancelled in case of heavy rain or lightning.
