Finding an affordable Halloween activity for the whole family is a hard task to fulfill during the season of scares. As most members of the Muskego community know, Muskego High School’s Student Council puts on a free event for all people in town called Spooktacular. Student council continues to do this event because, “everyone always loves it so much,” said Melanie Davis, a member of the executive board on Student Council . Nearing Halloween, a whole day is devoted to parents and their kids to be able to come and enjoy the spooky festivities at the high school. The event runs for three and a half hours and took place on October 27th this year.

Activites are set up for children of all ages during this family-friendly event. Kids are able to receive tattoos and to get their face painted, to create a craft and to color a coloring page, to play games and to go through a haunted house, to eat a provided lunch and to snack on sugary snacks throughout the day. High schoolers run all of the stations allowing for the adults to have nothing to worry about. The games are created by the Student Council members and each game has a Halloween theme to fit the mood. After a child finishes a game, they recieve candy. So by the end of the entire day, a child has a bag full of delicious treats. The haunted house adds a spooky factor to this event and is created by the Student Council members. Members put on scary costumes and scare the children that come through the haunted house. For sympathy, before entering the haunted house, a child is asked whether they want it to be “super scary” or “not scary”. Custodians and lunch workers from the high school come in on this day to keep things clean and prepare a meal for the participating members of the community. This year, about 450 meals were taken by people who came to the event suggesting that there was a huge turnout!

Another great part of Spooktacular is that the entire Student Council is dressed up in Halloween costumes making no one feel out of place. Along with this, children are able to take photos with special characters. Members of Student Council dress up as well-known characters and are given a set time-frame where they are at the photo station. This year we had Ariel and Moana, Ana and Elsa, Wonder Woman and Superwoman, Eeyore and Winnie the Pooh. Children love meeting their favorite characters because it immerses them into a world of fantasy and imagination by being able to see their favorite t.v. characters in person.

This event, “brings the community closer because people can spend time with their friends and family, since it’s a chance to do that without spending a ton of money,” said Melanie Davis when she told me about all of her experience with Spooktacular. Not only does this event benefit the community and make them happy, but also, many, “Student Council members say it is their favorite event that we do,” said Melanie when I asked her how members of the council like this event. Spooktacular brings smiles to so many kids faces and will continue to do so in the years to follow.
