Old Town Burleson will be taken over by cute babies dressed up as cuddly critters, action heroes, swashbucklers, Disney characters, and definitely a few Minions and Star Wars characters on Saturday, Oct. 31, for the City’s annual Boo Bash.
This is a new date. The event was moved from Oct. 24 to Oct. 31, due to rain. If the Oct. 31 date is rained out, trick or treaters can stop by the BRiCk for candy throughout the day on Oct. 31.
Oct. 31 will be two hours of free trick or treating sponsored by the City of Burleson’s parks and recreation department and the community. The fun is 6 p.m.-8 p.m. on Ellison Street, between Main Street (Babe’s/Fresco’s corner) and Johnson Avenue.
Children, birth to 12 years old, will arrive in their favorite Halloween costumes – trick-or-treat bags in hand – for the ultimate in trick or treating. Local businesses, churches, and civic groups set up booths and decorate their vehicles for trunk-or-treat fun. Children will enjoy free candy, games, bounce houses, a pumpkin patch full of free pumpkins to decorate, and a costume parade.
Performers Unlimited Dance will be on the City stage in the Burleson City Hall parking lot, 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m., followed by Artistic Motion Dance at 6:30 p.m. Between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. we’ll be on stage reading a Halloween story to the children, and then the parade of costumes will begin. Parents, bring your cameras!
Ellison Street will be closed to traffic between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Oct. 31. The closure is from Main Street to Johnson Avenue, and at all cross streets in that four block area. The first two rows of parking in the City parking lot at the corner of Warren and Renfro streets will be reserved for those vehicles displaying handicapped stickers or license plates.
Booth spaces are free, but you have to fill out a booth application, which is available on the City website, http://bit.ly/Boo2015app. For more information, call 817-426-9112.
