The Green Bay Packers will again host the popular Halloween-themed events Spooktacular Fun and the Haunted Concourse this October.
Spooktacular Fun, free to the public, is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 30, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Accessed through the Miller Lite Gate on the north end of Lambeau Field, it will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Haunted Concourse this year again is open for two days of thrills and has an admission price of $2, with all proceeds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin. The Haunted Concourse is accessed through the Oneida Nation Gate on Lambeau Field’s east side. It is open Friday, Oct. 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; and again from 9 to 11 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 30, hours are 10 a.m. to noon, 1 to 4 p.m., 6:30 to 8:30 p.m and 9 to 11 p.m. Lines may be cut off prior to the end times to ensure no unnecessary waits.
The Haunted Concourse, designed for teens with a PG-13 rating, will be set in a darkened Lambeau Field concourse and feature scenes of high-tech shocks and horrors. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a guardian into the Haunted Concourse, and children under the age of 8 will not be permitted.
Spooktacular Fun will feature interactive and entertaining musicians and magicians, as well as the popular stilt walkers. Children also will have the opportunity to participate in face painting and other Halloween-themed arts and crafts. A professional pumpkin carver returns to delight families.
“Our Spooktacular Fun events fall on Halloween weekend this year, so we invite everyone to wear their costumes,” said Cathy Dworak, Packers manager of community outreach and player/alumni relations. “We’re looking forward to an exciting weekend and providing families an enjoyable event to attend together.”
