On October 25th PBGW hosted the Fourth Annual Halloween Bash. The Bash was a marvelous success with over forty booths and vendors from all over our community. Over 200 excited trick-or-treaters and their families from near and far joined us for the spooktacular event filled with candy and non-candy treats. We were all blown away by the turn out from our community. This was the biggest Bash yet and we were so grateful to host this well attended event. The Halloween Bash is an annual event created for those in our community with special needs and their families to experience a relaxed and enjoyable environment. It is a safe space to dress up, trick-or-treat, eat tasty food, and meet their favorite costumed movie characters.
This year Disney princesses, Batman, Spiderman, and characters from Star Wars joined us, as well as former Philadelphia Phillies Tommy Greene and Mickey Morandini, to take photos with the trick-or-treaters. Everyone certainly went the extra mile to bring smiles to everyone’s faces! It was definitely heartwarming to see faces light up as they stood next to a Storm Trooper or hugged Cinderella. The booths, hosted by local businesses, organizations, and school groups in our community, were each so creatively decorated. A few that stood out were filled with characters from Alice in Wonderland (Horsham Rotary), Lumberjacks at the Sawmill (Living Hope Community Church), The Chick-fil-A cow (Montgomeryville Chick-fil-A), Sluggersville, and the Montgomery County Police K-9 unit.
While benefiting those in our community with a safe, understanding, and not frightening Halloween event, the Bash also benefits the Miracle League of the Lehigh Valley with a donation of the proceeds from the event. For more information about what the Miracle League is doing to benefit our community head over to their website.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Halloween Bash a roaring success, we could not have done it without you. A special thank you to our booth hosts, event sponsors, and volunteers. Your willingness to share your time and treats with our community is greatly appreciated.
We can’t wait for next year! See you in October 2019!
