Selby Spooktacular is a playful, family-friendly event. Daytime activities will include traditional, wholesome Halloween happenings like trick or treating and pumpkin decorating, fun and educational activities like seed planting, as well as more frightening (but not too scary) options for older children like a mad scientist experiment center. Children are encouraged to bring their own trick-or-treat bags to collect their goodies. Come in costume! Grilled foods will be available for purchase from the Michael’s on East grill. The Selby House Cafe will also be open with its full menu. B’s Cool Treat’s will have their ice cream cart on -site with a wide assortment of frozen treats.
