Kennesaw Parks & Recreation beckons area ghouls, ninjas, superheroes and princesses to “Spook-Central Park” for its annual Fall-O-Ween Fest—an evening of FREE carnival games, trick or treating, children’s amusements and costumed family-fun. Come dressed in your best Halloween digs and showcase your cool moves during a Monster Mash Dance Party. Judges will award prizes every half-hour to their favorite costumed participants. Fall-O-Ween Fest activities will be scheduled from 5 to 7:30pm. Disney’s live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic Beauty and the Beast (rated PG) will be projected onto a giant inflatable screen after sundown. For your comfort, bring a blanket or low-back chairs. Pop-up tents, canopies or beach umbrellas that can obstruct the view of others are not permitted. Concessions will be available for purchase. Cancellations may occur due to weather conditions. Visit www.kennesawparksandrec.com for updates.
