Icelandic State Park plans spooky Kids Weekend

A weekend full of fun activities with a Halloween theme is planned for the 24th annual Kids Weekend on Friday through Sunday at Icelandic State Park near Cavalier, N.D.

A weekend full of fun activities with a Halloween theme is planned for the 24th annual Kids Weekend on Friday through Sunday at Icelandic State Park near Cavalier, N.D.

Activities will begin with a costume contest at 7 p.m. Friday, followed by trick or treating in the campground. Campers who want to participate will need to bring candy for the kids. Those who want to give out candy will be given a marker for their campsite post so kids will know where to stop. A Halloween movie will be shown later in the amphitheater.

Saturday will begin with the traditional Iron Kid Contest for children ages 9 to 12 with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. The event includes bike riding, and all participants must have a bike and wear a bike helmet.

An Arts and Crafts Fair on Saturday afternoon at the picnic shelter will feature tie-dying, face-painting, craft items to take home, button-making, strolling entertainment and a seed-spitting contest. Kids should bring a white T-shirt or other clothing item to be tie-dyed.

T.C. Hatter and Marcianne will provide entertainment and fun at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the amphitheater followed by an ice-cream social and a drawing for a free bike and other door prizes.

The final activity will be the Sand Castle Building Contest from noon to 1 p.m.
