“Get Spooky” will return to the Beverly Arts Center (BAC), 2407 W. 111th St., on Sunday, Oct. 27, with sessions from 2 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m.

The free event is a Halloween-themed day meant to build community and welcome people to the BAC.

“Get Spooky” is a tradition at the BAC started over five years ago by Artistic Director Shellee Frazee in an effort to give back to the community. Staff, volunteers and teaching artists transform the building into a Halloween haven for kids ages 1 to 100.

“‘Get Spooky’ is a chance to get everyone into the Halloween spirit by offering a day of free fun,” said Interim Director of Education Carly Bishop. “Oftentimes, there are limited family events around the holiday, so we want to continue this tradition and provide a space where parents can bring their kids for a day of enriching arts activities tied to Halloween.”

This year’s festivities will include crafts, face painting, dancing, a haunted theater, a movie presentation, a scavenger hunt and a “musical instrument petting zoo” where participants can try their hand at whatever instrument they see.

Prizes will be given to those who complete the scavenger hunt.

Due to popular demand, space is limited, and advance registration is encouraged.
