Ripley’s St. Augustine Attractions and several other Old City businesses have come together to make sure local kids have a safe and fun Halloween after the stress and hardship created by Hurricane Matthew. The event will take place in the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! parking lot from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, followed by a showing of the movie Beetlejuice at 7:00 pm (bring lawn chairs for the movie).
There will be free popcorn and people handing out candy. Kids are encouraged to come in costumes; there will be a costume contest and prizes.
More than 20 businesses and organizations have joined together to provide entertainment, games, activities and – of course – candy! Organizers will try and fill the “Great Pumpkin” with donations for local families in need. People are encouraged to bring donations of gift cards, cash, and even spare change. Donations are not required to participate in the event.
