The spookiest holiday of the year is quickly approaching and the Missoula Family YMCA wants to make sure you're invited to their festivities. The Missoula Family YMCA will open their doors to the public on Wednesday, October 31st from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at their building located at 3000 South Russell Street in Missoula.

The evening will be full of fun including a costume contest, indoor trick-or-treating, a cider station, and lots of other fun activities. For the first time ever a blood drive will be going on during the event, so be ready to roll up that sleeve and give the gift of life. A big thanks to the American Red Cross for helping set up the blood drive portion of the event.

The Hoot & Howl is a Teal Pumpkin event and will have non-food and nut-free treat options available. The costume contest is set to kick off around 5:45 p.m. with prizes for the best family costume as well as the top 3 youth costumes.

Admission is a suggested $1 donation, and if you want more details about the event click here.
