The Marion Art Center will be offering families some much-needed Halloween fun with a new COVID-safe twist for 2020. The beloved annual Halloween parade will not take place this year; such large-scale gatherings are still prohibited by the state due to safety concerns. However, the MAC is encouraging families to keep that Halloween spirit alive!
The MAC will feature a virtual Halloween parade on a dedicated page on the MAC website (marionartcenter.org). The wonderful MAC witches are calling on all kids and families (and adults too!) to send in photos of themselves in costume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who submit entries will be invited to drive by the MAC to pick up their Halloween goody bags on Saturday, October 31. These candy and art supply-treat bags will be prepared and presented by one of the MAC’s famous witches, of course. Details will be emailed a few days before Halloween.
The Marion Art Center will be devilishly decorated, and glowing at night, for all to see. Families can visit the MAC’s ghoulish grounds and will enjoy spooky sightings all around the building. Additionally, the MAC’s outdoor community message board will get a fresh coat of black paint, and anyone is invited to add a Halloween-themed message, drawing, or decoration with paints, markers, collage, or cutouts. The Marion Art Center also invites community members to share original material such as pumpkin-carving tutorials, ghost-storytelling videos, and festive recipes. Send any and all entries to email@example.com, and keep your eyes on the MAC as it undergoes its Halloween transformation!
The MAC’s Halloween festivities are sponsored in part by a generous grant from American Research & Management of Marion.
