(October 16, 2003) – On Saturday, October 25, 2003, from 6 to 9
p.m., the City of Orlando will host the 13th Annual
Jack-O-Lando’s Pumpkin Palace, a non-scary trick-or-treating event,
at Dover Shores Community Center.
As part of the City’s commitment to
children and families, this event provides safe and fun
trick-or-treating through themed rooms for children 11 years old and
younger. The event features hayrides, friendly costumed characters
and a treat for every child that participates in the costume
parade. Festivities also include a parent-child costume contest.
Community Center is located at 1400 Gaston Foster Road. Admission
is $3 per person. Donations of baby items will be accepted for
B.E.T.A. (Birth, Education, Training, Acceptance, Inc.), a center
dedicated to enhancing the parenting skills of teen parents through
intensive education and counseling programs.
