Fort Worth – On Saturday, October 29, Medical City Alliance will host its second annual “Spooktacular” celebration. The family-friendly event will feature music, free food and drinks, face painting, a scavenger hunt and many more activities for the kids.
“Medical City Alliance is proud to host a family-friendly event that allows families to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment,” says Glenn Wallace, CEO of Medical City Alliance. “With recent events, we know that many parents are concerned about allowing their children to venture out on Halloween night.”
Last year, nearly 3,000 people from the local community joined Medical City Alliance for its first celebration. This year’s event will again feature a children’s costume contest. Winners will be selected every hour and each winner will receive a prize for the best costume judged within that hour.
“Our goal is to keep improving this event year over year,” says Matt Eiserloh, Director of Community & Public Relations for Medical Center Alliance. “We have added first aid classes for children and made events featured last year, such as the scavenger hunt and costume contest, even more fun.”
First aid classes, specially designed for children ages 5-15, teach children when to call 911, how to recognize signs of a heart attack or stroke, and simple bandaging techniques. These classes teach children what to do in an emergency when an adult may not be home.
The event also features “Ask the Doc” sessions, where adults can ask physicians questions about surgical procedures, cardiac health, and many other general health-related questions.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 29 from 10:00am – 2:00pm. The event will be hosted by Medical Center Alliance, located at 3101 N Tarrant Pkwy, Ft. Worth, 76177.
