The Not So Scary Halloween Bash


It’s coming up fast! Miami Children’s Museum’s “Not So Scary Halloween Bash” is in its planning stages. The fabulous fundraiser already has a stellar host committee and they are looking for motivated parents to get involved, as well as sponsors interested in reaching the highly targeted patrons who participate in MCM’s fundraising events. Individual tickets are also on sale. Contact Sarah Smith at ssmith@miamichildrensmuseum.org for details. In the meantime, check out last year’s Docu-Spot video recap to get you in the mood.



Art Student Alec Kreisberg took on the ghouls, ghosts and goblins while speaking to Debbie Spiegelman, Raquel Regalado, Mayor Tomas Regalado, Marlen Pernetti, DJ Kerr, Wayne Pathman and Kaylen James about costumes, candy and Halloween at the Miami Children’s Museum.

More than 700 costumed attendees attended Miami Children’s Museum’s first ever “Not So Scary Halloween.” Chairperson Marlen Pernetti and her committee planned a fun day for the whole family to enjoy the festivities. All this and a silent auction helped successfully raise more than $65,000 benefiting the MCM’s scholarship programs!

All the young costumed invaders from Spiderman to the Little Princess had a boo-tiful time as they trick or treated their way around the Museum’s 14 galleries, braved the haunted house, tested their knowledge in the mad scientist lab or created crazed crafts.

Families had a bewitching time decorating pumpkins donated by Robert Netkin and cookies donated by Dixie Crystals. There was also face painting, balloon artists, scary movies, scary music by Rhythm City Productions, MAC Cosmetics makeovers for all the Moms, silent auction, a costume parade and much, much more.

Food was sponsored by Epicure Markets with desserts and snacks from The Cookie Bandit, vitaminwater, Coca-Cola, Pirate Booty, Blue Bell Ice Cream and POPChips. Other in-kind sponsors included: NUPRESS, Miami Science Museum, Paragon Theaters, Premier Tenting and American Airlines Arena.
