‘Scare-ousel of Dreams’ has spook-tacular turnout for Halloween event

KENNEWICK, Wash. — The Gesa Carousel of Dreams transformed in the ‘Scare-ousel’ of dreams for Halloween on Sunday. Hundreds of people came out for trick-or-treating and carousel rides.

After a drive-thru event last year, the event staff with the Carousel of Dreams was excited to welcome the community back to the ‘Scare-ousel.’ The attraction brought 500 people per hour on Sunday.

“We’re really grateful to have everyone back at the carousel,” said event staff member Riley Santo. “We love being a part of the community, and it’s just a really fun event opportunity, it’s very wholesome family fun.”

Children who attended wearing a costume were given a free bag of candy, as well as a ride on the carousel. Booths were also set up from sponsors like Gesa and Benton PUD for children to trick-or-treat at.
