Tinker Park offers Halloween fun Saturday, Oct. 29

Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum and Booker Washington Community Center will present the Annual Neighborhood Halloween Party at Tinker Park, 411 Kent St., from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29. Admission is free.

Kids and adults alike are invited to come and enjoy a day of family fun. Costumes are optional. Historic Tinker Swiss Cottage—looking its creepiest—will be open for tours. Visitors can also bounce across the newly reconstructed Tinker suspension bridge over Kent Creek. The bridge is a replica of the one Robert Tinker built in 1891. Kids can make Halloween crafts, get their faces painted and take home balloons. There will be Halloween treats as well.

At noon, Booker Washington Community Center will serve a hot dog lunch. After lunch, the young performers of the Ngoma Dance Troupe and a story teller will provide exciting entertainment.

This event is sponsored by Rock Valley Heritage Kiwanis. Candy is provided by Cadbury-Adams. For more information, call Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum at 964-2424 or Booker Washington Community Center at 968-8861.
