Kids Halloween Party!
Every year we host our exciting Halloween Party! This is a great annual event that starts off with a kids costume contest, our karate parents are the judges and we have prizes for Scariest, Funniest, Best Home-Made, Best Boys' and Best Girls' Costumes.

Then we put away all the swords, stars, ninja weapons and Grim Reaper equipment and have a fun karate workout with our instructors.
Next, we go outside (weather permitting) and we have a family pumpkin carving contest. How big a pumpkin should you bring? We tell the kids they can bring what they can carry! Prizes for Scariest, Funniest, Grossest and most creative!

If we are outside for the event, then we have a pumpkin seed spitting contest with a marked off range. If we are inside the dojo then we decided to skip this contest....!
Next is the apple bobbing contest, run on traditional competition rules.
After the kids are dried off from bobbing for apples they can grab a plate and get something from the pot-luck snack table. When you first arrive at the dojo, put your snacks on the table by the door and they are there for the end of the party. This usually consists of cookies, pigs in a blanket, donuts, cakes, sausages, cheese and crackers, fruit sticks, etc.
Below is information from this years 2015 event!
What to bring:
- Pumpkin for carving and maybe your favorite tools, but no big scary kitchen knives please!
- Dry clothes if your kid is an apple bobbing diver!
- Food for the Pot-Luck snack table
