Fall is set to arrive very shortly and the Westlake Recreation Department is ready to go. Four special events are on the calendar so stop on in and register before the leaves fall and you are left holding the rake!
First up is our inaugural Spooktacular Scarecrow Contest. For $20 you will receive the wood, nails and straw. The rest is up to you. Deadline to register is October 1st, and then on Saturday October 5th you will stop in and pick up your supplies from the Recreation Department. Take them home and get your scarecrow together. Please return your assembled scarecrow to the Recreation Department by the 23rd for display and judging.
The annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Hunt will be held on Saturday October 12th from 1-4 PM on the grounds of the Westlake Recreation Center. Come for this fun filled festival for ages 9 and younger with a pumpkin hunt, face painters, hay rides, refreshments and more fun and games than you can imagine.
Our new Tales from the Trail is a family hayride adventure thru the woods of the Recreation Center. Starting at 6:30 and lasting till 8:30, the hayride will have a story teller aboard and guide you thru the “not too scary” trail. Enjoy some doughnuts and cider, DJ Eazy and some games while you wait for your turn aboard the hayride. Deadline to register for this event is October 11th or when full. Limit of 150 people.
Finally the annual Monster Mash & Splash will step off on Saturday October 26th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. This is a family event for families with children ages toddler to 8 years old.

The first half of the event will be trick or treating thru a decorated Recreation Center, then everyone into the pool for a splashing good time including our famous floating pumpkin patch.
