The City of West Palm Beach will celebrate Halloween with a free and frightfully fantastic event, Clematis by Fright, on Thursday, October 29, 2015 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the West Palm Beach Waterfront. This family-friendly event, which adds a spooky twist on the weekly Clematis by Night concert series, will feature live music by the premiere modern rock band Taylor Road, free kids’ activities ranging from hay rides to face painting, and a costume contest for all ages, including four-legged friends.
At this family celebration located on the Great Lawn, kids can safely trick-or-treat with a free Halloween bag in the Haunted Hallows area, where candy will be provided by approximately 20 nonprofit organizations and local businesses. Kids will enjoy activities including hay rides, face painting, a caricaturist, balloon twisters, games and more, completely FREE of charge.
Guests are encouraged to don their most imaginative costumes for a contest with categories for kids, adults, couples, families and pets. Registration for contests begins at 6:00 p.m. and guests must be present to win. The kid, family and pet costume contests take place at 7:00 p.m. and the adult and couple costume contests take place at 8:00 p.m., both on the Lake Pavilion. All contest participants will parade through the event site to show off their costumes once the judging is complete!

Prizes will also be awarded to the adult costume winners for first, second and third place and for the best overall costume for couples.
