Seeking Spooktacular “Scary Walk” Sponsors

On Friday, October 15th the Burlington Parks & Recreation Department is holding its annual Spooktacular Halloween event at Simonds Park. Program Coordinator Kelly Lehman told BNEWS how your business or organizations can be a part of this Halloween tradition.  

“We’re inviting businesses and organizations to come and decorate a 10×10 spot for free along the “Spooky Walk”. We will have a panel of judges come and judge each of the locations. First place decorations will receive a Title Level Sponsor for our department, which is a $3,000 value. Lehman said. “Second place will receive a Silver Level Sponsor Package for Celebrate Burlington 2022, a $1,500 value.”

The first level prize includes sponsorship at eight (8) Burlington Parks & Rec events throughout the year, except Celebrate Burlington. First place also earns the business or organization name on the traditional Turkey Trot 5K Race Shirt at Thanksgiving time.

The Second Level prize is a full Silver Level Celebrate Burlington 2022 sponsorship including event advertisement, a table for the duration of the popular event, sponsor name on activity, name on the big banner on the gazebo and four (4) VIP lunches that day.

The 10×10 spot along the “Spooky Walk” is offered for free and interested entrants are urged to register ASAP. Lehman told BNEWS local Dentist Derek Song and Premier Martial Arts have already entered and are planning their sponsorship of Halloween fun for the families of Burlington. 

“Businesses can utilize their space as they wish and are encouraged to have something spooky,” said Lehman. “They just need to provide their own materials.”
