Simon Kidgits Club to host Boo Bash Party at Katy Mills Oct. 31

Katy Mills will offer South Texas-area children a safe place to take part in Halloween activities as the Simon Kidgits Club® presents its annual Boo Bash event on Friday, Oct. 31 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the AMC Plaza.

“Katy Mills is the perfect place for families looking for Halloween entertainment in a fun, safe community environment,” said Sabrina Scruta, director of marketing and business development for Katy Mills. “Whether kids want to show-off their new costume or take home some Halloween-themed crafts, there is an activity, here, to suit superheroes, princesses and not-so-scary monsters. Boo Bash is one of our most popular Simon Kidgits Club programs.”

This year, the Simon Kidgits Club will recognize October as Bully Prevention Month in association with ‘Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying’ and Captain McFinn, a proprietary role model, who promotes social and emotional development in children through live virtual playdates, online games, apps and resources for parents and teachers. Families will be encouraged to download The Bully Free Zone, a free app released by Captain McFinn, filled with fun, educational activities, a new McFinn cartoon and a chance for families to win a free iPad Air.

Families who download the app can sign the Bully Free pledge and help spread the word about bully prevention. With the Kindness Calendar app feature, children and parents can spread the good word via prompts to complete acts of kindness. Once an act is completed, it is tracked in the Kindness feed. The more kind acts that are accomplished, the more badges children and their parents receive.

Katy Mills will have several activity stations and games for children to enjoy including trick-or-treating, a costume contest and Halloween parade, Halloween crafts and pumpkin decorating, scary stories, a “Mummy Wrap Relay” and more.

In addition, Katy Mills will have samples of Bon Bon Boom pops to live an intense flavor experience with all Halloween participants. Bon Bon Boom pops, bubble gum lollipops is available in a variety of intense flavors including Berry Explosion and Sour. It features a hard candy shell and a juicy gum center and will surely be a big hit!
