Princeton – get ready for Halloween Family Fun Night

The third annual Halloween Family Fun Night sponsored by the Princeton and District Agricultural Fair takes place on Saturday, October 26

Get ready for a night of spooks

Dress up in your finest Halloween attire and get ready for a night of spooks, treats, freaks and fun!

The third annual Halloween Family Fun Night sponsored by the Princeton and District Agricultural Fair takes place on Saturday, October 26 at the Princeton Exhibition Grounds (PXA) beginning at 5 p.m.

Get a little grossed out with the Spooky Feeling Centre run by Michelle and Steve Jaster.

Take your little ones on a tour of the Junior Spook House courtesy of the Graves Family and then let them have some fun in the Bouncy Castle Room courtesy of the Princeton Baptist Church.

Visit the Halloween Craft room brought to you by Erin Williams and play the Halloween Dart Game with Jaclyn Smith Whitecotton.

The Princeton Extrication Crew (Hwy Rescue) will be on hand again this year to tie you up for the Three-Legged Race Course.

For those of you who are brave enough to dare… the main Spook House will open at 6 p.m.

The main Spook House is created by the Bernard, Crucil and Derker Families along with the help of volunteers to set up and run. This is intended to provide a fun Halloween fright, so if you don’t enjoy a good grossing out or scare now and then, please enjoy the Junior Spook House instead.

About half way through the evening, take in the fireworks show and if you get a chill at all, go warm yourself by the bonfire.

The Double J P.S.Y.C.H.O.s (Partially Sane Young Cooks Handing Out Smiles) will serve you at the free concession.  The concession food is graciously provided for the event by the Princeton Rodeo, Racing Day, Little Britches and Agricultural Fair Boards.

“Sponsorship and participation from the community has grown this year—we are very excited,” said Jennifer Bernard on behalf of herself and Dawne Graves, co-founders of Halloween Family Fun Night.

The Fun Night Shuttle Bus courtesy of Lynch Bus Lines and driver Ann Heuser will be available to get those without transportation, to and from the grounds.

Pick up starts at John Allison School at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Pick up from Vermilion Forks School at 6:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. / Dairy Queen at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Arrival time at the grounds will be 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. The final bus to leave the grounds to return people home will be at 8:45 p.m.
