OSSINEKE — Get ready for an unforgettable Falloween celebration as Vivero Industries and Dinosaur Gardens once again join forces to present the eagerly anticipated 5th Annual Falloween event.

This year’s spooktacular festivities are set to take place on Sunday, Oct. 8, promising a day of family-friendly fun and excitement that you won’t want to miss. The VIP Party is sold out with over 100 guests eagerly securing their exclusive passes. The overwhelming response highlights the growing popularity and reputation of Falloween as a must-attend event in our community.

General admission is from 4 to 6 p.m., allowing attendees ample time to immerse themselves in the enchanting festivities. Entry for adults is priced at $7 per person, while children aged 13 and under are admitted free of charge. This year’s Falloween promises to be the biggest yet, with a record-breaking participation of over 30 local businesses, making it a true community celebration.

The beloved trick-or-treat trail returns this year, offering a delightful Halloween-themed journey through the Dino Park. Local businesses have generously donated their time to distribute candy, creating a memorable experience for guests. Craft vendors will be in the park, will not only be sharing candy but also offering unique and one-of-a-kind items for purchase.

Your hub of entertainment is at the pavilion. Guests can savor a delectable array of food options from food vendors and sweet treats. Halloween-themed music will be provided by Steve and Brenda, and Zander Vivero. Don’t forget to cast your vote for the best vendor display/costumes at the designated voting station.

This year, we’re thrilled to introduce a new addition — a pumpkin patch, where pumpkins will be available for purchase from Alpena General Store. Additionally, Dinosaur Gardens apparel will be available for purchase at a discounted price.

The event coordinators have expressed their enthusiasm for this year’s Falloween, noting that everything has seamlessly fallen into place, setting the stage for yet another outstanding event. We invite residents and visitors alike to join us for a day filled with Falloween magic, community spirit, and cherished memories.
