Looking for some safe, spooky fun this Halloween? The ACRES Project's Halloween Hustle 5K is back and better than ever for 2021, thanks to our friends at Alpha Xi Delta! Put on your best costume, bring your family, friends, and four-legged pals, and join us outside at Sidney Friedman Park on Halloween Day for a family-friendly costume contest, crafts, activities, and a noncompetitive fun run/walk for a great cause! Your participation helps local nonprofit The ACRES Project grow community and purpose for local adults with autism. Every cent of your registration fee and optional donations helps support our community!

Spook-tacular Family Fun

Your $20 entry fee includes all of the following:

🎃 Entry into our costume contest, with valuable prizes provided by local businesses. We'll have different categories for kids, adults, family/group costumes, and even pet costumes, so show us your best Halloween style! Once you've registered, you can even add photos of your costume to our digital photo album for all to see!

🎃 Pumpkin painting, crafts, candy, and games at Sidney Friedman Park. You can visit our pumpkin patch to choose and decorate a pumpkin, and then create your very own button badge to wear and share. Don't forget to take your creations home with you! There will also be fun games and activities to play.

🎃 Tasty Halloween treats provided by Dunkin Donuts!

🎃 A free commemorative t-shirt!

🎃 Supporting a great local cause. The ACRES Project relies almost entirely on community support to allow us to offer critical support programs for adults with autism at low or no cost to participants. Every penny of your entrance fee and fundraising will go to The ACRES Project to ensures that we will continue to be there to support our community.

🎃 And of course, entry into the 5K! This is a noncompetitive, just-for-fun "race" which starts and ends at Sidney Friedman Park. We encourage you to follow our route through downtown State College and walk, jog, roll, or run at your own pace. The point is to get outside, show off your best costume, and have fun while staying active! Although this is a noncompetitive event, you may upload your race time if you wish, and everyone who completes the route can download a personalized Halloween Hustle finisher's certificate to print and display. Details on how to do this will be emailed to registered participants.

After the event, we encourage you to visit Doggies Pub for 10% off all food items, with all discounts donated to The ACRES Project. Halloween drinks will also be available for those Hustlers that dare to try!

 Have fun, stay safe, and have a happy Halloween! We hope to see you downtown for some spook-tacular fun!
