Fishers Parks & Recreation will offer a jump start on Halloween fun in Fishers next weekend with their annual Boo Bash event. This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Central Green and at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater.
Boo Bash features fang-tastic fun for children of all ages, including more than 60 vendor booths for safe trick or treating, inflatables, giveaways, live entertainment, and more. More than half the vendors will have designated Teal Pumpkin Project booths to provide an inclusive experience for kids with food allergies and special needs. The Fishers Farmers’ Market will host a special Monster Market in conjunction with the event, so you can stock up on fall favorites such as mums, pumpkins, and gourds while you enjoy the spooky fun!
Boo Bash attendees can also enjoy the brand-new Play Fishers mobile app, available for download on the App Store and on Google Play. The free app features a digital scavenger hunt, vendor lineup, event map, and more.
Get a head start on the fun at the Pumpkin Carving Extravaganza on Thursday, October 24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. Help the Fishers Parks & Recreation team decorate for Boo Bash by carving a pumpkin to display at the event. All ages are welcome at this free event, and pumpkins and carving tools will be provided.
Leading up to the spooktacular celebration, share a photo of your costume for a chance to win the Boo Bash Digital Costume Contest. Public voting begins Friday, October 18 on the Fishers Parks & Recreation Facebook page, and the five photos with the most “likes” will win a prize pack. There’s also a Howl-o-ween Division for pet costumes!
Free event parking is available at The Flats at Switch, Fishers Police Station, and Spark Apartments. Handicap accessible parking will be located in the southeast City Hall lot. Street parking is also available throughout the Nickel Plate District.
