Legacy Place was the place to be for trick-or-treating this year! The annual Legacy Place Halloween “not-so-spooky” Spook-tacular was held on October 29, 2016 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
With approximately 2,400 attendees, 800 of them being kids, this free event took kids and adults of all ages on a “sweet” adventure. As participants arrived to partake in the Candy Land-themed Spooktacular, they were greeted by none other than King Kandy, Princess Frostine, and Lord Licorice. Children enjoyed face painting and a scavenger hunt-like trick-or-treating adventure with 37 stops. During this trick-or-treating adventure, about 300 pounds of candy was distributed! Children received a game card at the starting point of the candy adventure and it was stamped along the Candy Land path for a chance to win a special prize.
Children weren’t the only ones who got to have some fun, Total Wine & More offered a Fall Wine Tasting for trick-or-treaters who were over 21 years old.
Some of the Legacy Place merchants and tenants also hosted their own Halloween activities. At Nicklaus Children’s Outpatient Center, attendees decorated masks, while Ethan Allen Design hosted pumpkin decorating, and holiday crafts were made at Michael’s.
In addition to the Candy Land adventure, the event helped raise awareness for local non-profits. Virginia Sinicki, from The KVJ Show, attended the Legacy Place Spooktacular and helped give out prizes, while also raising awareness for Little Smiles of Florida, a non-profit that provides gifts and fun activities to children impacted by serious illness, homelessness or tragedy.
