Halloween in the park was a huge win for the city of Rainier. Hundreds of children and adults started arriving at 5 pm sharp . If you were not there you truly missed an amazing evening. Over 200 children brought their parents to Boo-Kowski Park, for a "Happy Halloween!" The kids enjoyed playing games more than the candy. We even had left over candy in our booth.
Alice Kinney showed up on her trusty steed as the "Grim Reaper." All George Johnson could say was "We have a horse! We have a horse here!!" What a terrific surprise for the kids and adults alike. Thanks to Alice, Boo-Kowski Park was spooky this year. (Pictures below this article.)
A special "thank you" goes out to: Rainier Community Cares, the Mayor & Rainier City Council, Rainier Senior Center, Rainier Emergency Food Center, Rainier Lions Club members, The Rainier Cub Scouts, Main Street Cookies and many other groups brought treats for the kids, so they could celebrate a safe and fun Halloween.
