11/2, 11 AM-4 PM

Trick or treating is on a school night? Bummer.
Celebrating Halloween with “the older kids” is too scary? Bummer!
I’m very proud to announce our first Halloween With The Dorks. This very special event is FAMILY FRIENDLY and has an emphasis on the kiddos that aren’t quite ready for the “pop out of the closet with a bloody chainsaw” type of experience yet… and best of all, it’s not on a school night!
We’ll be converting our detailing shop to a not-so-haunted house with games, activities, costume “contest” (spoiler alert, everyone’s costumes are going to be the best we’ve ever seen), and we’re working on potentially having a car show type trunk or treat type of an activity!
If you’re a local business interested in sponsoring an activity, please reach out to us!
**** SENSORY TIME is the first hour of the event (11am-Noon) ****
I can imagine Halloween being very overwhelming for any of our kids that are sensitive to flashing lights, loud noises, crowds, etc so if LOVE to dedicate an hour for the event where we’ll have the lights on, but still enjoy the festive environment, activities, etc.
