Peoria’s Annual Halloween Bash is Oct. 26
Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019 monsters and masked superheroes will roam the Peoria Sports Complex, located at 16101 N. 83rd Ave., during the city of Peoria’s annual, free Halloween Monster Bash from 5 to 9 p.m. New to the Halloween Monster Bash this year is the Sensory Room. This room is a calming, sensory-friendly space for children, teens and adults with sensory processing needs. There will be things like noise-canceling headphones, weighted blankets, plush chairs and soft toys for those who need it. For those children and families managing food allergies, the Teal Pumpkin Program (TPP) is returning to this year’s event. The TPP offers an alternative for kids where candy treats are not an option and can cause life-threatening situations. There will be TPP stations throughout the whole event. Although entrance is free, families are encouraged to bring canned food items to benefit the St. Mary’s/Westside Food Bank Alliance. Unlimited activity/ride wristbands are available for $5.
