The Buffalo Bills hosted nearly 500 Junior Bills Backers and their families Tuesday evening for a special Halloween party in the Bills Field House.
Kids of all ages put on their spookiest Halloween costumes and roamed the field where they were treated to a family friendly Halloween buffet dinner, all kinds of interactive games, pumpkin decorating, coloring, magicians, Billy Buffalo, a freaky exotic creatures and reptile show and a "Boo" bag courtesy of Pepsi. The Field House was overtaken by vampires, Batman, Spiderman, Supergirl, ninjas, pirates, baby bunnies, football players, tarzan, witches, Bart Simpson, butterflies, lady bugs, Frankenstein and more.
The children in attendance were excited to get an early jump on Halloween and even more thrilled to be on the Bills indoor practice field.
"I've never been on the field before," said Cameron, 10 years-old and dressed as a werewolf. "This is really cool."
"I liked all the games I got to play," said 6 year-old Christina and dressed as a princess. "I made a funny-face pumpkin and got lots of candy."
Some of the parents were also dressed in their Halloween-best and were just as energized as their kids. Parents took lots of pictures and it was a fun atmosphere and experience for everyone in attendance. Billy Buffalo made his rounds with all the children and was masked and in costume as well.
One of the highlights of the evening was an exotic creature and reptile show that was put on by Nickel City Reptiles. Tarantulas, snakes, tortoises, lemurs and kangaroos were a few of the creatures that kids got to see, hold and touch during the 30-minute entertaining show.
