- The City of Dublin has chosen its King and Queen of Halloween, Bob and Mara VanVliet, to preside over its annual Halloween Spooktacular on Thursday, October 19.
- The King and Queen of Halloween will meet and greet guests and preside as dignitaries in recognition of their volunteer contributions to the City of Dublin and the community. Dublin residents, the VanVliets, have a family tradition of volunteering for the community; parents Bob and Mara instilled this value in their children, Elisabeth, Stephanie, Laura and Rebecca. As their kids reached adulthood and moved out of state, Bob and Mara have continued to volunteer.
- Bob and Mara are fixtures at every City of Dublin parade checking in volunteers, carrying a balloon or surveying guests; every Independence Day as Gate Ushers during the evening Festivities; and at the Dublin Irish Festival on the Admissions Committee. Since 2001, they have also volunteered for many Parks related projects and Bob is also an alumnus of Citizens University, the Citizens Police Academy and the Washington Township Citizens’ Fire Academy.
- Bob works at Wendy’s and is a well-known corporate volunteer among the ranks. Mara is an Intervention Specialist at Bishop Watterson High School.
- Join us for an evening of merry, not scary family fun for guests of all ages on Thursday, October 19, from 3 – 8 p.m. at the Dublin Community Recreation Center (DCRC), 5600 Post Road.
- Event parking is available at the DCRC and Coffman Park. No shuttle service will be provided, but all locations are within walking distance of the event. Please note, the DCRC Bridge is closed to vehicular traffic due to construction and is open to pedestrian traffic only.
