Bellevue, Nebraska – As the Halloween season draws near, Falconwood Park in Bellevue presents a unique way to get into the ghostly spirit. Nestled near Allied Road and Platte River Drive, the park is set to host six nights of hair-raising double-feature films, giving patrons a reason to both celebrate and shiver.
The thrilling series, aptly named “Fright Nights,” kicks off on October 13th with classics like “Friday the 13th” and “IT” (2017). The festivities culminate on October 27th with a special “trunk or treat” event, ensuring both young and old get their dose of Halloween fun.
But it’s not just about movies! Every night, attendees can relish a variety of culinary delights as a food truck will be on-site, accompanied by a full bar and an assortment of concessions from Falconwood Lodge. Whether you’re craving Abra Kebabra’s exotic dishes or Family Traditions BBQ and Sweets’ comfort food, there’s something for every palate.
Tickets are modestly priced at $5 per individual. Children aged three and under are welcomed free of charge. Those interested can either pre-book their spots online or opt for on-the-spot ticket purchase at the entrance. And for those with furry companions, the event is dog-friendly, albeit with the prerequisite of leashing.
As the sun dips and the gates swing open at 5 p.m., visitors can either find a comfy spot for their vehicles or lay out lawn chairs and blankets if space runs tight. With a lineup boasting of films like “Scream,” “The Shining,” and “Hotel Transylvania,” paired with delectable food offerings from the likes of Hyde’s Slydes, Tastee’s Trailer, and 402 BBQ, Falconwood Park promises a Halloween experience that’s both spooky and sumptuous.
