Halloween Fun

The AAA NT enjoyed it’s annual Halloween Party recently. For the second year running the Anchorage Sister City kindly partnered with our association to put on a lovely family Halloween event. Everyone had a great time! We enjoyed American hot dogs and accompaniments, listening to great music from the Folk Club, playing Mini Golf with treats, and decorating pumpkins.

Halloween 2011

Sunday afternoon saw the AAA NT and the Anchorage Sister City Committee celebrating Halloween. We were lucky it was just a sticky humid afternoon – and we didn’t get a thunderstorm.

The Anchorage Sister City Committee sponsored pumpkin decorating, Halloween candy, costume prizes to the Deck Chair Cinema and a band. The band members were from the local Folk Club and they played ‘Americany’ folk (they usually play Irish). They were a wonderful addition to the hot dogs, trick or treat mini golf & costume comps. We also had 2 lucky door prizes – a kayaking day trip for two with True North Kayak Adventures in Homer; and a year family membership to the Seward SeaLife Centre. Also included in the lucky door prizes were Alaskan recipe books and some Halloween treats – just in case the recipients aren’t traveling to Alaska anytime soon.

Thanks to all who attended. It was a fun afternoon. 🙂
