The Dunes Village Resort is on our list of Family Favorite Hotels and it’s really no wonder. The Myrtle Beach resort offers a plethora of activities and comfortable accommodations for families – including its annual Halloween Spook-tacular event in October. Join the party next week on Saturday, October 25, and let the kids tie-dye t-shirts, wear costumes, play carnival games and more around the resort and its indoor water park. Here’s this year’s itinerary:
Mummy Wrap Contest – 10 a.m.
Head to the Palmetto Water Park and see who can become a mummy the fastest. Then break free of the wraps and head for the waterslides.
Tie-Dye T-Shirts – 11 a.m.
Make a tie-dye t-shirt and bring it home as a souvenir or wear it as your costume for the rest of the day (hippies anyone?). The artsy activity will take place at the Palmetto Water Park.
Pick & Decorate a Pumpkin – 12:30 p.m.
Help the kids pick out their own pumpkin on the Palms Lawn and then let them decorate it with their own personal style in the Palmetto Water Park. Bring them home as souvenirs, too. ($5 fee applies)
Personalize Your Trick-or-Treat Bag – 2 p.m.
Before filling them with candy, kids can decorate their own trick-or-treat bags. Get creative with this activity in the Palmetto Water Park. ($2 fee applies)
Magic Show – 4 p.m.
Dress up in your best Halloween costume and see magic done right before your eyes on the Palms Pool Deck.
Party Activities – 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The fun really starts in the evening with trick or treating, carnival games and refreshments. The costume contest takes place at 7 p.m. and is divided into age groups so that all can participate. Be sure to stick around for the Monster Bash Glow Party on the Palmetto Indoor Putting Green at 8 p.m. Glow items will be for sale so all can light up the night!
