Parker's most Spooktacular annual event, Halloween with Horses, is made possible through the assistance of many fun-spirited, horse loving and kid-oriented volunteers. Halloween with Horses organizers are still looking for friendly faces to help with event setup, the horse costume contest, pumpkin patch, trick-or-treat barn, hay rides, logistics and cleanup. It helps to have equestrian experience for some of these duties, but most responsibilities simply ask that you have a big smile and a willing attitude. High school students may earn community service hours. Volunteer shifts are available on Friday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 20. Please contact Krista Carrothers at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 303.841.5550 ext. 114 if you would like to volunteer for this event.
Halloween with Horses is ideal for families and horse lovers alike. A safe trick-or-treat barn, pony and horse rides, Stable of Terror, straw maze, pumpkin patch, face painting, petting zoo, crafters' fair and horse entertainment are just a few of the ways little ghosts and goblins can have fun. The highlight of the event is the horse costume contest-you have to see it to believe it! Halloween with Horses is one of Parker's largest annual events, with roughly 10,000 people attending last year. The Colorado Horse Park works with the Town of Parker, the Parker Library, the Parker Arts Council and hundreds of volunteers to make this event a success.
Halloween with Horses runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Colorado Horse Park, 7522 S. Pinery Drive. Visit http://www.coloradohorsepark.org/ or http://www.halloweenwithhorses.org/ for more information or call 303.841.5550.
