Medical Lake's latest community event, the inaugural Re*Imagine "Halloween Fall Festival" drew a big crowd of costumed kids and others last Saturday, Oct. 27, to take part in a variety of activities.

Hosted at Medical Lake High School, events included DJ Brian Stevens with his special mix of music and entertainment. 

Re*Imagine recruited a host of civic partners to present a free-for-kids community festival. Medical Lake's Kiwanis Club brought their traditional kiddie carnival games, the Lions Club hot dogs and drinks and St. Anne's Catholic Church hosted "Trunk or Treat" candy.

The city's SCOPE organization fitted kids with free bicycle helmets, Medical Lake High School's robotics team took on pumpkin bowling while Medical Lake Dental sponsored face and pumpkin painting.

Lakeland Village woodshop teacher Ken Cooper built and donated cornhole boards for that impromptu competition and kids and folks of all ages joined the parade of costumes around the high school bus loop.

Other activities included the Northwest Theatre putting on showings of the "Legend of the Headless Horseman" and the high school culinary club hosted a free spaghetti feed.

"All in all it was a fantastic collaboration of skills, talents, and ideas," Re*Imagine's Terri Cooper wrote in a news release. "It's full steam ahead for next year."

Cooper said thanks go out to the many volunteers with special thanks to volunteer coordinator Kam Gunther and Re*Imagine Halloween team leader Lorrie Wandler.

The Halloween event joins other activities like their Christmas Festival and tree lighting in December, as well as the group's involvement in helping promote Medical Lake's annual Founder's Day celebration each June.
