Nearly 200 kids and their families visited a spooky and entertaining Buffalo Bills Fieldhouse last night as the Bills hosted their second annual Junior Bills Backers Halloween Party.
Bills players including nose tackle Torell Troup, linebackers Arthur Moats and Antonio Coleman, and cornerback Dominique Harris visited with the children and helped them decorate pumpkins, signed autographs and took photos with the costumed kids.
The evening's festivities included interactive games such as football toss, football kick, bounce houses, inflatable games, ladder ball and corn hole/bean bag toss. Kids enjoyed photos with the masked Billy Buffalo, saw live animals with the Nickel City Reptile Show and played on the indoor field. In addition, Bills raffle prizes were given out and complimentary gift bags filled with goodies were provided for each child. Pumpkins were also given to each kid and a Halloween themed dinner was enjoyed by all attendees.
The smiling and engaging Bills players seemed as excited as the children and they noted their favorite costumes.
• Torell Troup: Mario and Luigi
• Arthur Moats: Darth Vader
• Antonio Coleman: Freddy Kruger
• Dominique Harris: Jacob "The Lion"
"This was a great Halloween event for the kids and their families...and us," said Moats. "We had a lot of fun helping kids decorate their pumpkins, and the Bills fans were really supportive and that was nice too."
The Junior Bills Backers Halloween Party was complimentary to all kids fourteen years of age and younger.
