Spookily good time had by all

A spookily good time was had Oct. 28 during Tsalteshi Trails Association’s second annual Spook Night. Community and municipal organizations as well as businesses sponsored activity stations along our trick-or-treat trail, and about 200 kids came out with their families to enjoy the fun. After costume judging for kids, adults and dogs, our 5-kilometer Zombie Run lurched into motion with nearly 50 entries, complete with a volunteer zombie scare crew. Once the sun started to go down, hot beverages and chili were available to help warm up.

The Tsalteshi Trails Association would like to thank our Spook Night volunteers: TTA Board, Bill Holt, Carole and Ted Bear, Tammy and Gavin Goggia, Keri Nelson, Pat King, Patty Berkahn, Jenny Cope and Mary Geiser, Cathy Carrow, Laura Pillifant and Jeff Fox, the Scary Soldotna High School National Honor Society Zombies, Shiela Best and Zombie crew, Skyview Athletic Director Kent Peterson, and Dan Pascucci, emcee extraordinaire.

We offer our sincere thanks to our trick-or-treat trail station sponsors: Kenai Watershed Forum, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Soldotna Chamber of Commerce, Stanley Ford, Central Peninsula Hospital/Central Peninsula Pediatrics, Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center, KPEA/KPESA, Alaska State Troopers/911 Emergency Dispatch, River City Rotaract, City of Soldotna and Soldotna Police, Peninsula Pediatric Dentistry, Learning Tree Montessori, Jumpin’ Junction, Mountain Magic Massage, Diamond M Ranch, Central Emergency Services and Tustumena 200.

And thanks to Mountain Magic Massage and the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center for donating prizes for our Zombie Run winners.

Your support not only contributed to a fun, family event promoting outdoor activities, it also helps TTA continue its mission to provide a well-maintained skiing facility for our local schools, as well as healthy recreational opportunities for the entire community year-round.

We hope to see you all at Spook Night next year, and, in the meantime, on the trails!
