The City of Dublin will host its annual Halloween Spooktacular on Thursday, October 19, from 3 – 8 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center (DCRC), 5600 Post Road.
Join us for the fright of your life and some merry, not scary family-fun! Guests of all ages can come in costume and enjoy Halloween hijinks inside and outside the DCRC. Don’t miss spine-chilling shows like Boo Boogie in the Haunted Theater, or Hip Hop Halloween live on the Hocus Pocus Patio. Goblins and ghouls can partake in candy corn crafts, supernatural slime, and the Columbus Museum of Art’s Cardboard Creations.
New in 2017, Pirates & Princesses will take over the Lantern Lagoon, located inside the Teen Lounge at the DCRC. Join Bella, Ariel and Captain Jack for a bounty of seafaring stories, swashbuckling sing-a-longs and photo opportunities with your favorite characters.
Don’t miss returning favorites like the Haunted Trail and Trunk or Treat Trail, or eerie exhibits featuring the Turtle Lady and the Bug Man. See how the pros carve pumpkins, and more.
Reduce your fear of waiting in line! Dublin residents and Dublin school district residents may pick-up Trunk or Treat Trail tickets at no cost starting Thursday, October 12 at 8 a.m., while supplies last, at the DCRC. Proof of residency is required with a limit of five per household.
