  • Halloween In Lakeview

    In place of our annual Trick or Treat on Southport event, we are partnering with local businesses to offer a Halloween Kids Activity Kit, Costume Photo Session and Jack-O-Lantern Scavenger Hunt! Celebrate Halloween with us and local businesses at these fun, socially distanced programs in Lakeview!

  • Jack-O-Lantern Scavenger Hunt Jack-O-Lantern Scavenger Hunt

    Calling all ghouls and goblins! The Jack-O-Lantern Scavenger is the perfect opportunity for you and your kids to dress up and celebrate Halloween in Lakeview! From Monday, October 26 through Saturday, October 31, participating businesses will have different Jack-O-Lanterns pictures in their storefront windows for kids to find using our scavenger hunt map and the riddle below.

    Peer at this map, for it holds a clue: each area notes a pumpkin patch in Lakeview! 'Round this spot you must search, for nearby you may find an assortment of pumpkins, one of each kind: pink, green, orange, blue...yes, even a yellow one, too! Find all five colored carvings, and take a photo for proof. Then fly to Candyality, they've got a prize for each sleuth: show off the evidence that you've completed this task, and a free cup of secret recipe hot cider will appear without ask!* The clock will be ticking, so prepare your brooms: these pumpkins will only appear 'til the Halloween moon!

    *Available with proof of completed scavenger hunt (all five colored jack-o-lanterns found) plus minimum $10 purchase in-store at Candyality.
