Halloween at the Y 2018
Successful Spooky Family Fun • 2018 Halloween at the Y
After our 2018 annual Halloween at the Y events, one fact is abundantly clear – our Y knows how to party! In a matter of just a few short hours, we opened the doors for free family-friendly community fun and welcomed 3,875 visitors to our four Greater Green Bay YMCA locations.
The Broadview Y kicked off the 2018 festivities. Over 550 guests enjoyed carnival games, bounce houses, cereal treat walk, balloon animals, two craft projects and a scavenger hunt, just to name a few of the activities. On a chilly fall afternoon, it was the perfect place for a family to enjoy some time together at the Y.
The Ferguson Family Y opened their doors to nearly 900 little ones and their families. Our visitors enjoyed games, a bounce house, bingo, floating pumpkin patch, dinner, gymnastics obstacle course, balloon animals, face painting and approximately 300 kiddos “shopped” for the perfect Halloween costume to wear this year. Another amazing spooky lab hallway delighted everyone. What a night!
Our East Side Y welcomed almost 1200 members and guests. Some of those highlights included magic shows, spooky room, games, GaGa, bingo, bounce houses, crafts, face painting, gymnastics and swimming. The fun was non-stop! One little fella’ made his way through the front lobby of activities and his Mom said “C’mon, let’s keep going buddy, there’s more to do!”, he exclaimed in total disbelief and excitement “Oh my gosh, there’s even MORE?!? WOW, I already loved it so much!”
Our West Side Y we saw nearly 1200 costumed community friends enjoy their evening. There was cookie decorating, glow dance parties, carnival games, balloon animals, face painting, GaGa, swimming and more! A fan favorite is always the spooky hallway designed by our very own Josh DeLair and his incredible family.
These events would not be the success that they are without the creative talents, countless hours and endless dedication of our dynamo Youth Development Directors! The Youth Development team could not pull off these special events without the support of each center’s leadership team, our amazing part time staff, and our marketing department. We had over 200 volunteers and staff help out at Halloween at the Y 2018. Our gratitude to you all!
Want to help future events? The Y is always accepting gently used costumes so we can start building our supplies for upcoming years. If you’d like to donate, simply drop them off at any of our 4 Y locations. Learn more about how to volunteer and our Halloween at the Y events »
