PENSACOLA, Fla. (WEAR) —
If you're looking for some family-friendly fun for Halloween, you can head down to the Blue Wahoos Stadium this weekend.
The event includes the Boo Dash 0.5K, a screening of the popular Halloween movie "Ghostbusters", and, of course, some trick-or-treating!
Check out the Wahooloween schedule:
- 5:30 p.m. -Packet Pickup for the BooDash 0.5k will open
- 6:00 p.m. - Wahooloween Trick-or-Treat begins (concourse)

More than 25 companies and organizations are coming together to hand out treats.
Blue Wahoos owners Quint and Rishy Studer said they jumped at the opportunity when the City of Pensacola decided not to host its annual trick-or-treat event downtown.
"We never wanted to compete with them, but as soon as we saw they weren't going to do it we jumped right in," Quint said. "It really fits us and, of course, Pensacola Little Theater came in and they're doing Field of Screams. So it's just a wonderful safe, safe friendly family atmosphere."
Wahooloween is Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
After a fun evening of collecting candy and treats the night will end with fireworks.
