The Severna Park Community Center (SPCC) is gearing up to show its darker side—complete with Spooky Splashes and a Haunted Holy Grounds.
This weekend the SPCC will transform into a Halloween-crazed center complete with activities for all ages. Friday night kicks off with two Spooky Splashes, and the Haunted Holy Grounds runs throughout the weekend.
“This has actually become one of my favorite times of the year,” said executive director Jennie Boden. “It’s really festive. Everybody is in a really good mood, and we have a lot of fun coming out of the woodwork. It’s a great time.”
Spooky Splash Junior will be held Friday at 6 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. for one hour in the therapy pool. This event is for all ghosts and goblins 5 years and younger, and a parent must accompany their child into the water.
Big Spooky Splash will take place Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the main poll, and is for all ages. Witches, ghosts, goblins and sea monsters will haunt the pool, so participants should swim at their own risk.
Tickets for both Spooky Splashes are $9 and must be purchased in advance at the SPCC front desk.
For those who are extra brave, Haunted Holy Grounds will run all weekend. The haunted house features a guided tour through a bunch of different rooms with live actors and surprises at every turn.
For those brave enough to enter, tickets for Haunted Holy Grounds are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
Parents with kids of all ages can make a night out of the SPCC’s spooky attractions. Boden said hot dogs and other snacks will be offered, so it should be fun for the whole family—if you can handle the spook.
