LEWISTON—The Power Vista, the visitors center at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Niagara Power Project, will hold its annual “Halloween Spooktacular” on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A free trolley service will be available throughout the day, courtesy of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, between the Niagara Gorge Discovery Center and the Power Vista.

“Halloween Spooktacular” at the Power Vista will feature face painting, mask making and ghoulish ghost story readings by the Niagara University Future Teachers Association.  There will also be free pumpkins and a costume contest from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Another highlight will be a visit to a haunted house hosted by students from Eastern Niagara County who are members of the Lockport YMCA Future Leaders.

This day of entertainment is planned for all ages.  Twice the Halloween fun will be provided as the Power Vista and Discovery Center team up for the occasion.

At the Power Vista, staff members will accept donations of disposable diapers and baby toiletries for the Center of Joy.

More information on the Power Vista can be obtained by calling 716-286-6661.
