It wasn’t football players, but Power Rangers, princesses and pirates who took over the Fieldhouse this week for the annual Buffalo Bills Kids Halloween Party.
Over 400 little Bills fans and their parents came out to the Healthy Zone Fieldhouse at One Bills Drive on Thursday for a Halloween bash complete with bounce houses, football skills games, pumpkin decorating and more.
When asked why it looked like she was having so much fun, Kaylee Haines, 5, said, “Because you get to be where the Bills play and go on the bounce houses.”
There were quite a few aspiring Fred Jacksons in costume at the party, working on their football skills at some of the interactive throwing and kicking stations.
“They’re Bills fans,” Amy Redmond said of her young sons, “So they thought they were coming to a game. Once they saw the games inside though, they were just as excited about coming to the party instead.”
To provide some scary Halloween entertainment, Jeff Musial at Nickel City Reptiles got the little ghouls and goblins off their feet as he put on a show with scorpians, snapping turtles, snakes, and other creepy-crawly animals.
Autographed Bills items were raffled off, and the kids had a chance to meet the guy who is always wearing his Halloween costume – Billy Buffalo. Noah Arnts, 5, who was dressed as a refrigerator, said, through a laugh, “Billy Buffalo tried to pick something out of my costume and eat it!”
A great way to kick off Halloweekend, fun was had by the little trick-or-treaters and their parents alike.
