Let me tell you some fun facts about me. I love a good giveaway. And, I’ve happened to get pretty lucky lately. I’ve cleaned up with a free hotel stay, ballet flats and even a fitness tote. But if a giveaway is for something I truly NEED, then I love it even MORE. 😉 And this is a perfect example. Did you know that 10 Florida families will win 2 FREE years of college from the Florida Prepaid College Foundation? It’s launching its very own Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program!
Shriek Week 2017 at Boca Raton’s Sugar Sand Park Community Center is back this month with TWO WEEKENDS filled with local Halloween fun and entertainment for the whole family! Come and celebrate their 13th fear year!
The best part? The themed haunted house is re-designed each year, so Shriek Week 2017 is always fresh with something for every age group in your family. And they go all out. It’s crafted with professional effects, lighting, sets and actors.
The theme for 2017 is appropriate since it’s lucky/scary number 13: “Superstitions.” Guests will test their luck when they visit the 13th floor, cross black cats, step on cracks, whistle past graveyards, and even walk under a ladder. Don’t forget your lucky rabbit’s foot! Timed reservations are required for this top notch haunted attraction, which is appropriate for ages 7-12. The LITE NITE (October 26) haunted house is for ages 5-12, with brighter lighting, less intense scares and a modified soundtrack.
BOCA RATON’S SHRIEK WEEK 2017 DATES/TIMES: Fridays and Saturdays- October 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 from 6:00-11:00 p.m. and a special “Lite Nite” on Thursday, October 26 from 5:00-9:00 p.m.
COSTS: Haunted House discounted reservations are $6.00 per person. Reservations will be $9.00 per person starting October 6th. Reservations can be booked in person, online, or by calling the Box Office at 561-347-3948.
MBMom Tip: Reserve early as time slots do sell out.

It’s a hands-on experience introducing kids to some mysterious animals, such as a boa constrictor, a hedgehog, a chinchilla and more!
The Kids’ Spooky Film Festival will also be returning for its 6th year. Films will be shown in the queue area while patrons await their turn for the haunted house, and everyone will get a chance to vote on their favorite film online!
