On October 19, Help Me Grow Utah and Parent Champion Janae Moss organized a free Halloween party for families with young children at the Thanksgiving Point’s Haunted House in Lehi, Utah.
The party included a reptile show, a sneak-peek screening of the new PBS kids’ series Peg + Cat, balloon animals, face painting, a costume parade, and of course sweet treats! The mayor of nearby Orem even served as the event’s co-DJ with Moss.
“We had an awesome turnout to our Halloween party,” Moss reports. “I would say close to 1,000. I can’t wait to hear the actual numbers!”
Free family events are an excellent tool to strengthen family communities, share information about HMG services, and teach developmentally appropriate and inexpensive games for parents to play with their kids.
