The Seward Parks and Recreation Department’s annual annual Halloween Carnival raised a few shrieks and laughs—and a lot of money.

According to SPRD officials, the event raised more than $7,000. Those funds will be used to help sponsor local clubs and groups during the upcoming year.

At the event, participants enjoyed 20 booths offering games, activities, prizes and yummy things to eat. Joining the Carnival this year were the Seward Boys and Girls Club, Daisy Meyers with Tarot card reading, PEO, and the Seward Police Association, which brought in the Tricycle Obstacle Course with “drunk driving goggles.” Other big hits included the Teen Rec Room’s Hillbilly Havoc, a challenging obstacle course, and the “Smoke Mazes” from the Seward Volunteer Fire Department. The Seward Boosters brought back the Halloween Costume Contest and also provided hot and cold dinners for all the carnival attendees. The American Legion and Chinooks donated the great food to the Boosters.

SPRD officials extended hearty thanks to community volunteers who worked hard to make this event happen, including the organizers: Teen & Youth Center (TYC) Councils, Parks and Rec staff, and Seward’s Boosters Club, an all-volunteer organization. Special thanks to Petro Marine for their safety, light-up bracelets, Essential One, Safeway and Seward Market Place for their donations as well.

The Seward Parks and Recreation Department also encouraged the community to thank the Alaska Railroad for the use of the Dale R. Lindsey Intermodal facility.
