OpenSouthJersey.com is publicizing a number of activities in Haddonfield related to Halloween. Locally, the site has branded the initiative, “Haddyween.”
Details on two scavenger hunts may be found on the website – one sponsored by the Historical Society and the other by The Allison Nagle Team at RE/MAX One. Scavenger hunt cards are available to diners at The Bistro, on the corner of Kings Hwy and Tanner.
Families are being encouraged to create scarecrows for their front yards. Information about getting the ingredients may be found on the website, along with details of a planned townwide scarecrow walk.
Through Sunday, November 1, downtown shoppers can vote for their favorite Haddyween window displays. One lucky shopper will win a Trick-or-Treat bag of gift cards contributed by participating businesses. The business that gets the most votes will win free advertising in Haddonfield Today, sponsor of the contest.
The Happy Hippo has a wide variety of dinosaur-themed toys, and there may even be an appearance by a friendly dinosaur on the corner of Kings Highway and Haddon Avenue. Visit Inkwood Books for dinosaur and Halloween-themed reading fun.
DiBartolo’s new European-style pâtisserie will be baking up something special – stay tuned!
Photo opportunities for families by the bronze sculpture will be available, including a guest appearance from the artist himself, John Giannotti. At 11am on Saturday, October 31 he will talk about the process of creating the sculpture.
King’s Road Brewery will feature a Haddy-themed beer for the occasion – “Hadrosaur Hop Giant.” It will be released on Saturday, October 31. Then, when the sun goes down, King’s Road will screen Jurassic Park on the outside wall of their beer garden (weather permitting).
All across town, thru Saturday, October 31, Haddonfield residents and visitors can enjoy the spirit of the holiday with these and other Haddyween happenings.
