Lots of fun is coming to Mountain Makins’ this year with all sorts of activities for children!

Whether a child wants to do arts and crafts or spend time playing games, there will be plenty of options. The crafts and games have a Halloween theme and will be the perfect way to get ready for trick-or-treating.

The Children’s Activities tent is located on the lawn along Jackson Street. The 44th annual festival will be held on October 26th and 27th.

Several options will be available for arts and crafts. Some of the activities include corn husk dolls, ghosts, pom-pom spiders, skull masks, and painting pumpkins.

Lots of paints and decorations will be available for kids to personalize their pumpkins or make their masks as spooky as they want. Beta Club members from East and West High Schools will be on hand to help with crafts and games.

Games will be equally fun with a spider web toss, spin the wheel, a witch house, pumpkin toss, and even a scavenger hunt! Also included is Dig It, where children can dig through a pool of corn to uncover prizes and candy. All games have prizes for those who win, and there will be an assortment of Halloween themed toys and candy.

Young visitors will also enjoy watching the folk life demonstrators making baskets, buckets, turning wood, blacksmithing, apple butter making and much more.

The festival is scheduled for 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Saturday, October 26 and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday, October 27 at Rose Center in Morristown. Children under 6 are admitted free, and admission for 6-12 year olds is only $1. Adults pay $7/day or $10 for Saturday and Sunday. All proceeds from the festival support the arts and cultural programs Rose Center provides to the community.
