Spooktacular at Midway High School Cafeteria

The 5th Annual Spooktacular presented by Incommons Bank and the City of Hewitt will be on Halloween from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Midway High School! This FREE event includes trick or treating, games, costume contests, prizes & more!  A portion of the event proceeds will go toward Hewitt First United Methodist Church’s Hallelujah Food Pantry.

What are the rules and prizes for the costume contest?
The costume contest will have three age categories: 0-3, 4-7 and 8-12. The contest starts at 7:00 p.m., and winners are selected by a panel of judges (the panel typically includes representatives from Hewitt’s City Council, the City of Hewitt and the Greater Hewitt Chamber). Prizes of goodie bags and a trophy are awarded to the first-place winner in each age group. All participants will receive a certificate for a kids meal at Raising Cane’s in Hewitt while supplies last.
Will food be available for sale?
Yes, we will have food trucks at the event, and the trucks typically accept both cash and credit.  Food trucks for the 2018 event are to be announced.  In the past, Pokey O’s, Dave’s Burger Barn and Raising Cane’s have been onsite.
Where should I park?

The Spooktacular will take place inside Midway High School Cafeteria. The event entrance is on the right-hand side cafeteria, and parking will be in the main student parking lot behind the school. Any updates will be posted on this website and on our social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
