Partnership for Children of Lincoln & Gaston Counties Fifth Annual Spooktacular a success
The Partnership for Children of Lincoln & Gaston Counties fifth annual Family Spooktacular was held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 and had an attendance of approximately 1,500 children and family members. Patrons came to enjoy the day’s festivities at the WoodMill Festival Grounds in Vale, which included trunk or treat, face painting and fitness trail. The local ambulance, fire truck and Inmate Transport Van were also at the grounds to educate children.  
 
The event was geared toward families with young children and helped raise awareness of the Partnership’s services.
 
Parents were able to learn more about the different Smart Start funded projects which include our Child Care Health Consultants, the Assuring Better Child Health & Development Program and the Very Important Parents Program.
 
“The fifth annual Family Spooktacular was a huge success and we are thrilled with the amount of support that we received from the community,” said Mike Linker, Executive Director of the Partnership. “It was great to see all the children and family members who came out to enjoy the day.”
 
Various activities returned this year including the Tumblebus and Seamore, a fun-tastic inflatable provided by Twist and Tuck in Lincolnton. New activities included an exhibit from the Catawba Science Center and fun activities for school age children. Patrons also enjoyed the fitness trail with a treat of fresh fruit at the end! A free hotdog lunch was provided again this year.
