The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island hosts the second annual Tricks & Treasures at The Boardwalk Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 5 to 8 p.m. This FREE family-friendly event features trick-or-treating, live entertainment, and kids activities, all in a safe and fun beachfront environment.
Entertainment by Captain Davy and the Crossbones includes pirate shenanigans, music, storytelling, balloon animals, and a kids costume contest.
Parents and their little goblins can stroll through the Boardwalk for numerous candy stops and kid-friendly carnival games complete with prizes. Little ones will also receive some treasure for completing the special Boardwalk Treasure Map and redeem “Kids Eat Free” coupons valid at all participating restaurants.
“This is our second year hosting this exciting family-focused event, and we hope it’s even bigger and better than the last,” says George Golematis, General Manager for the Boardwalk. “We truly want to create a safe place for families and the community to come together and enjoy Halloween festivities on the beach.”
The Boardwalk is offering FREE booth space for local organizations to pass out candy. Availability is limited, and those interested may contact Jordan Hicks at Jordan@saltwaterrestaurants.com or 850-650-4725.
