ONCE UPON A PUMPKIN on Friday, October 28, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.

Hear ye! Hear ye! All ye fans of fairytales! Thou hast been summoned to join in our annual Halloween festivities at Hoover Library.  The Evil Queen and the Frog Prince will greet you at the door and issue a proclamation to each family.  This will help guide you through the event, which is spread throughout the entire library.  What tales dark and Grimm will you explore?  Here's a sneak peek:

Brave our Fairytale Forest on the Theatre level. Play games with pigs, make crafts with Red Riding Hood and her grandma, eat candy off of gingerbread houses with Hansel and Gretel but . . . BEWARE the Big Bad Wolf!

Tour our Fairytale Village in the Kid Zone. Trip trap and wrist wrap with goats and trolls, make a mask that is just right with Goldilocks, experience giant beanstalk fun, and put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho your way through the Teen Spot. Take a look in our magic mirror with Snow White and whistle while you work on your beards with the dwarfs. BEWARE the Evil Queen! She may be in disguise and peddling poisonous apples.

Be our guest at Cinderella’s Ball on the Plaza. Meet your hostess Cinderella and her Prince Charming. Take a picture in her pumpkin coach. Dance with Belle and her Beast. Feast with Aurora and the three good fairies. Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo with Fairy Godmother and raise your glass with Gaston.

Costumes are welcome, but not required.  The library closes to the public at 6 p.m. on that day.  We will re-open at the stroke of 7.  We're expecting a large crowd, so you may want to come early to nab a parking spot.  We have a much earlier curfew than Cinderella, so we can't party until midnight.  Our fairytale fun will conclude at 9 p.m.  And we'll all live happily ever after. THE END
