The Swift Current Mall will be hosting a Halloween celebration on Saturday, featuring spooky activities certain to draw out plenty of young families. 

Entitled Swift Current Malloween, the event hopes to bring in children dressed to the nines in their Halloween attire. 

Angel Joy Acedera, the event planner for Swift Current Mall, will be hosting this event for the first time. 

We will invite families to celebrate this eerie holiday with a variety of fun,” said Acedera. “There will be a fun-filled Halloween party here in the mall, with no admission so kids may enjoy free popcorn, face painting, balloon twisting and fun games.” 

Acedera explains that those aren’t even the main attractions, as a Halloween scavenger hunt involving more tenants will serve as an interactivity for the kids, in which a spooky gift basket will be given away. A costume contest is also set to take place with festive prizes for the winners. 

“We are expecting support from the community, especially since we tied up with some of our marketing partners like the Newcomer Welcome Center, and we also had help from the Family Resource Center,” stated Acedera. “We're hoping that this will make the community more vibrant and dynamic with exciting activities that will cater to everyone in the community, as we promote diversity and inclusion and support local businesses.” 

The event will take place from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Swift Fun Park, Swift Current Mall’s newest attraction.
