Immediate Release - Contact: David Chauvin - September 29, 2005 (516) 869-7794
Albertson, NY- Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilman Thomas Dwyer announced today that North Hempstead’s “Spooky Week” is back by popular demand. Everyone is invited to the Clark Botanic Garden for three terrifying nights and one “not-so-spooky” day to walk amongst the ghouls, goblins, ghosts and much more including the Swamp Monster and several new attractions.
This year’s annual spooky walk will take place October 27th, 28th, and 29th from 6:00 to 9:00p.m. Free live music by It’s Only Rock n’ Roll will help set the mood on Friday, October 28th. An adult must accompany all minors to the garden. Admission is $4:00 and refreshment will be sold.
“The Gardens will be transformed into an oasis of fright and surprises, where witches, ghosts and other hair-raising creatures will abound,” commented Supervisor Kaiman. “Visitors will enjoy music and see costumes that will astound their eyes. I encourage everyone to come down and get in the spirit of Halloween.”
For parents, pre-schoolers and young children a “not-so-spooky” walk will be held on Sunday, October 30th, 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity for those who wish to visit the scary garden in the light of day without the terrifying music and fright factor. Admission is $3.00.
“This year, there will be bigger scarier effects then ever imagined,” stated Councilman Dwyer. “And for those more easily scared we have a kinder and gentler spooky walk available for the youngsters during the day.”
The Clark Botanic Garden is located at 193 I.U Willets Road in Albertson. For directions, call 516-484-8600 or log onto the Town’s website at www.northhempsteadny.gov.
