Hilloween 2013 is Coming...

Here at the Chamber, we're already planning for Hilloween 2013. Last year we blew our goal of 700 attendees out of the water and this year we're planning an even bigger and better event. We'll be covering up the Cal Anderson Park Sunbowl Meadow with circus tents, adding another kiddie rock band (Recess Monkey had so much fun they're coming back), more carnival games AND a Dog + Human costume parade. Save the Date: Saturday, October 26. As always, the event ends with hordes of trick-or-treaters descending on Broadway.


If you'd like to sponsor this family-friendly community event, email Michelle Hippler for this year's Sponsor Pack. We've got lots of options for you to get tied in, plus we have a more aggressive media outreach plan that will help us to build the the Hill the THE place to come for Halloween.
