Haunted House Building - 10:00 AM - TBD on Saturday, October 19

This will be our second year helping Pottawattomie Park build a haunted house for the kiddos to enjoy. Last year featured a lot of spooky trees, eyeballs, and red lights. We can’t wait to design this year’s theme. Note: Since this particular event doesn’t involve working directly with kids, anyone can volunteer regardless of whether or not they’ve gone through the Park District’s vetting process.
