Halloweener Derby Day

The third annual Halloweener Derby Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Seaside Amphitheater. Sponsored by the Merchants of Seaside, the Halloweener Derby Day is a fundraiser for 30A Radio, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Alaqua Animal Refuge. Events include the dachshund-only race, a pet costume contest, and a live musical performance.

Halloween Carnival

A Halloween Carnival with Point Washington United Methodist Church begins at 5 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Kelly Green in Alys Beach. Proceeds benefit the Missions of Point Washington UMC. A $10 donation is suggested. Featured games include can toss, spoon race, duck pond, balloon pop, costume contest, and bounce house.

Hallelujah Bash

A free community fun filled evening is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Oct. 31 at First Baptist, 201 Beach Drive in Destin. The free event offers cotton candy to games, moonwalks, jumping air balloons, obstacle courses and more.

“Hallelujah Bash is a more practical option than trick-or-treating,” explained Laurie Roper, creative director for children’s ministry. “We don’t emphasize this as an alternative to ghouls and goblins, and it’s more just a way to keep kids off dark-streets. Hallelujah Bash is an option for family friendly celebration in a tame atmosphere, replacing the dark overtones of Halloween with good, clean family fun.”
