Caddo County Kids, Kites & Frights
Oct 26, 2019
Grab your Halloween costumes and bring the family to Anadarko for an action-packed day of events all over town during Caddo County Kids, Kites & Frights. This must-see festival offers something for everyone and plenty of spooky, costume-wearing fun.
The day will kick off at Randlett Park with a 5K Run for Your life Halloween Costume Fun Run, a 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament and the Oklahoma Wildlife Fishing Clinic. If you like to skateboard, don't miss your chance to win some cool gear at the Shred Fest Skateboard Tournament at Rotary Park. Mutton Bustin fans can get in on the sporting action at the Caddo County Fairgrounds where children can compete for cash prizes.
Head to the old Anadarko National Guard Armory for heart-pounding spooks and thrills at the Eerie Acres Haunted Armory. Auto enthusiasts won't want to miss the Car & Motorcycle Show and Poker Run slated for the day. Football fans can still catch the game at the OU and OSU watch party and tailgate competition.
Downtown Anadarko will be a happening place with a flurry of activities. Listen to live musical performances from Richard Clift, Dani Carson, Michael Goss and Across the Washita. Don't forget to watch out for zombies roaming around the downtown streets. Free laser tag will kick-off after dark, and with a small entry fee, you can join the Corn Hole Tournament to see who has the best aim.
Let your little ones choose the perfect pumpkin and participate in the painting and jack-o-lantern contests at the pumpkin patch. Dust-off your best artistic techniques during the chalk art contest, pet cute animals at the petting zoo and stuff your bags with goodies during trick-or-treating. From bounce houses and games to the Children’s Haunted House, there will be plenty to do.
Test your skills during the town-wide scavenger hunt at the Heritage Museum, then head to the Southern Plains Museum's Native American Arts & Craft Fair. Browse the vendor booths, take a free tour, see fry bread demonstrations and play the games set up for the day. Watch stunning performances during Native American Exposition Dancing, Buck Skin & Cloth and Fancy War Dance Competitions.
See some of the world’s largest kites take flight during Kites Over Anadarko at the Anadarko Municipal Airport. At three-stories-tall and 200 foot long, some of these mammoth-sized kites can even pull a full-size truck down the road. There will also be parachute races, candy drops from the air, kite-making classes, a rock wall and bounce houses, plenty of fun games and food vendors on-site during Kites Over Anadarko.
