BOOtanical

October 22, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Thu, 10/31/2013 - 5:00pm - 8:00pm

Clark Gardens BOOtanical will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Oct. 31. The community-wide event will support local animal shelters, C.A.R.E., Center of Life Mineral Wells and Center of Hope Weatherford.
Activities designed for children 12 and younger include trick or treating, arts & crafts, games, a “Walk on the Wild Side”, an old-fashioned cake walk, a fortune teller, ghostly movies, DJ music and food. The goal of the event is to (1) provide a safe, fun family Halloween event, (2) stock local food banks’ pantries and support local animal shelters and (3) provide education on nature and environmental resources.
There will be a costume contest for dogs, children and adults. People costume contests begin at 6 p.m. and the dog costume contest begins at 7 p.m. Dog costume winners will be crowned Mr. and Mrs. Barker County and Mr. and Mrs. Palo Pinto Paws County. Bonus points are given to dogs that have a platform or cause they are campaigning for.
Admission to the event is free with the donation of a nonperishable food item or pet food. Otherwise, regular admission fees apply ($7 for adults, $5 for children and free for children 4 and under). For more information, visit http://www.clarkgardens.org/events/bootanical.html.
