Lake Ozark Stirring the Cauldron for Halloween on the Strip
Combining traditional activities with a dash of youthful zest, the Bagnell Dam Strip Association (BDSA) is
trying out a new recipe for a day of family fun at its annual Halloween on the Strip, October 28.
From 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. continues the traditions of Trick or Treat at participating Bagnell Dam Strip
businesses, Games of Skill for prizes and the Cookie Walk at Luby’s Plaza. At 4:00 the Costume Contest with
several age categories and one best group costume, all compete for prizes on Luby’s Stage. Immediately
following is a Pie Eating Contest for kids and for adults.
Additions to the schedule extend the day on both sides of the main event, starting with an 8:00 a.m 3K Haunted
Fun Run. The run starts at Lake Ozark Coney Island/Sugar Shack Ice Cream and will run past the Heritage
Elementary School. A nominal fee will be charged which the students will donate to Citizens Against Domestic
Violence. Back at Coney Island, a $5 pancake breakfast from 9:00 – 11:00 will raise funds for BDSA special
Another new activity is TEEN NIGHT. From 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., the evening features a scary movie, a bonfire
and Dance Party with DJ Bob Dodd. These new events are the result of the middle school students of Mrs. Misti
Maples, School of the Osage “Tribe Time” group called, “The Bagnell Dam Action Team.” This group of 12
and 13 year olds are working with a liaison of the special events committee of BDSA to weave their new ideas
into the existing framework of the established Halloween on the Strip event. These students will also judge the
Pumpkin Decorating Contest which is open to the public to bring their already decorated pumpkins to Luby’s
Stage for judging after 2 p.m.
After the full day of family activities, night comes to life on the Bagnell Dam Strip with a little spice. Several
establishments will be celebrating the holiday with their own special events. For example, Tucker’s Shuckers
will offer a $1500 prize for their Saturday night adult costume contest.
The day is sure to sure to stir up excitement. With so many activities, Lake Ozark’s Halloween on the Strip
offers something for everyone’s taste.
