With Halloween around the corner, there are plenty of fun upcoming events in Prescott for seniors to enjoy. The Prescott, AZ, senior care professionals at Home Care Assistance have put together a list of local Halloween-related events where your aging loved one can have a hauntingly good time.
1. Fall Festival for Families
The Prescott Public Library at 215 East Goodwin Street will be hosting this fair on October 27th from 4pm to 6pm. At this festival, your loved one can spend precious time with his or her family or Prescott caregiver while playing games, enjoying yummy apple refreshments, and listening to not-too-scary stories appropriate for the whole family.
2. Halloween Bowling
The Antelope Lanes at 6301 East Second Street will be hosting this holiday event on October 22nd from 3pm to 6pm. Costumes are appreciated, but not necessary. Your loved one and his or her friends can have a blast dressing up in costumes while getting some exercise through bowling, and they can even participate in the costume contest and potentially win a prize. If your loved one takes the grandkids, there will be a bounce house that will keep the kids entertained. Seniors who attend this event will also be giving back to the community because all proceeds will be donated to Books to the Rescue.
3. A Haunting Experience Tours
A Haunting Experience Tours at 2105 Blooming Hills Drive offers 2-hour walking tours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights by appointment. Your loved one can have a memorable time walking the streets where famous lawmen and outlaws once roamed, feel the chill of passing spirits, and learn about the past history of the town.
The Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary at 1403 Heritage Park Road is hosting this festival on October 29th from 9am to 5pm. At this daylong festival, your loved one can view the exhibits, feed the animals, play fall-themed games, make Halloween crafts, and sample some tasty seasonal food. Your loved one can also save a dollar on admission by bringing a canned food item that will be donated to the Yavapai Food Bank.
