3rd ANNUAL FAMILY FUN FEST
Join us for the 3rd Annual Saenger Theatre Family Fun Fest on October 30 beginning at 4 p.m. through 6:30 p.m!
Because this event has grown in popularity and attendance over the past two years, we have moved it to Palafox Place in front of the Saenger Theatre.
There will be an inflatable obstacle course, an inflatable bounce house and carnival games for children to attempt their skills.
This event is free and takes place during the Downtown Improvement Board's Trick or Treat.
DOWNTOWN TRICK OR TREAT
The Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) will host the annual Downtown Trick or Treat, on Thursday, October 30th from 4-6:30 p.m. for children 9 years of age and under. The event is sponsored by Pen Air Federal Credit Union.
Shop Owners, Restaurants and Downtown Businesses distribute candy and trinkets to participants. Pensacon will be walking Downtown streets in costume handing out goodies.
Palafox Street will be closed from Garden Street to Main Street, so families can trick or treat safely in Downtown.
The DIB creates a number of family friendly events and Downtown Trick or Treat is one of the most popular. The walkable Downtown community is a perfect, safe way for costume-clad guests and their parents to move door-to-door.

WITCHES AND WARLOCKS HAUNT DOWTOWN PENSACOLA
The 2014 Witches and Warlocks Convention bring horror, humor and a Shakespearean accent to downtown Pensacola. Climb aboard a Winterfest trolley and Glinda the Good Witch will lead you on encounters with some of the most famous spell-casters in history. You'll learn a charm to protect yourself from their dark magic, release a helpless victim from a terrible curse, and pick up some candy along the way, thanks to actors from First City Shakespeare.
This tour is a little bit spooky and a whole lot of fun for the family, with singing, interactive visits with the witches, and goodies for everyone. The rides last 90 minutes, beginning and ending at the Visitor Information Center at the foot of the Pensacola Bay Bridge. Cost is $5 for children 10 and younger, $25 for adults.
The Halloween Trolley Tour is a production of First City Shakespeare in conjunction with Pensacola Winterfest, a nonprofit group with a long record of family-friendly entertainment.
First City Shakespeare, directed by Michelle Hancock, is a group of actors and artists in Pensacola. They perform Shakespeare in schools and the community to promote classical theatre, the arts, and the work of the Southeastern Teen Shakespeare Company. They bring the work of William Shakespeare out of the textbook and into the classroom and theatre where it can be experienced as it was originally intended.

KIM HOWES ZABBIA: CREATIVITY vs. FEAR
The Pensacola Museum of Art (PMA) is pleased to announce Creativity vs. Fear, an exhibition by Louisiana artist Kim Howes Zabbia. Zabbia poses a no fear way of thinking. She pulls inspiration for many of her works from occurrences that have happened throughout her life.
Artist Statement: When I work, the paint and I are in constant dialogue. I have my ideas; the paint has her own. Without this silent discourse, the concept cannot be resolved, so the painting waits to be completed at a later date whenever I decide to surrender. It takes strength on my part to let the paint win, not to judge or second-guess it, because I know that the paint will reveal my lifelong struggle between creativity and fear and the depths of my subconscious which I would prefer to hide.
Zabbia will also be teaching a painting workshop entitled No Fear from 9am -3pm on Saturday, November 1. This workshop will include problem solving and acrylic painting on watercolor paper. All materials will be provided. Artist Talk with Kim Howes Zabbia on October 30, 7-8pm.
Museum hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10am - 5pm and Sunday 1pm - 5pm. The Museum is closed on Monday. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for active duty military, children 17 & under, Museum members and seniors.
