It’s almost time for one of our favorite events of the year: The 6th Annual Kids’ Ball! This year’s ball will take place on Saturday, October 28th from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at Central Market on N. Lamar.
The Kids’ Ball is hosted by local band, White Ghost Shivers, who kindly invited Creative Action to join along in bringing the fun. If you’ve never attended, here are five reasons you should join us this year.
1. It’s a great excuse to wear a costume
Not that you need an excuse to dress up, but who doesn’t like to rock their Halloween costume more than just one day a year? We encourage you to don your Halloween best to embrace the full experience (or create a costume at our interactive art station!).
2. Family-friendly activities for all ages
Creative Action will host interactive, arts-based activities from 5 to 7 p.m., including:
- Music and movement exercises
- Art stations, including wand-making
- A photo booth
3. Great music from local legends, White Ghost Shivers
White Ghost Shivers, a five-piece band shaking skeletons since 1999, will play two spooktacular sets from 6 to 8:30 p.m. The band is well-versed in a multitude of genres, including blues, swing, country and jazz, so they’re sure to play something that will get you and your little ones moving.
They’ve also won more than ten Austin Music awards, so don’t miss out on your chance to catch one of Austin’s best local acts!
4. It’s completely free
This is a free, family-friendly Halloween event open to and appropriate for all ages. As is Kids’ Ball tradition, we are grateful to be hosted by Central Market at 4001 N. Lamar Blvd.
5. Have fun while supporting Creative Action
The Kids’ Ball is more than a party — we enjoy the opportunity to engage kids in the arts while also educating parents about Creative Action’s work.
The mission of Creative Action is to spark and support the academic, social and emotional development of young people. Feel free to bring along your friends and family who would benefit from learning more about our work!
There’s no need to RSVP (though you can check out the official Facebook event for a virtual reminder) — just show up ready to have a great time. We hope to see you there!
