Photo Gallery: Halloween Madness at Great Lakes Mall
More than 2,000 kids and parents got dressed up to collect candy at the Mentor mall
A parade of Cookie Monsters, Disney princesses, Scooby Doos, Batmen, Iron Men and Supermen (and Superwomen) circled the interior of Great Lakes Mall Wednesday evening.
More than 2,000 costumed kids and parents gathered for this year's edition of Halloween Madness, in which the store gave candy, stickers and coupons to trick or treaters.
The fun at the mall will continue from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday during the Kidgits Boo & Bash Fun Day. There will be prizes, a balloon artist, candy, crafts and a costume contest. Kids can also watch as an artist makes an abstract painting live in the mall.
From 4 to 6 p.m., kids can see a special magic show.
Kids can still support a worthwhile cause while having some spooky fun. When children ride the All Smiles Aboard trackless train, $1 of their ticket price will go to Cassidy's Hope Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps children with pediatric cancer.
"Great Lakes Mall is the perfect place for families looking for Halloween entertainment in a fun, safe community environment," said Renee Lanzara the mall's director of marketing and business development.
"Whether kids want to show off their new costume or take home some Halloween-themed crafts, there is an activity here for every ghost, witch, princess and werewolf."
