Special Events and Festivals

Here is a great alternative to going door-to-door. Bring the family and meet your friends at the MAC for a night of games, crafts, snacks, and of course Halloween candy! This carnival-style event will be geared toward children ages 2-6 years old, but all ages are welcome. We will be sure to give your little goblins a frighteningly good time!  Boo Bash is held the Friday before Halloween at the Mansfield Activities Center.

The Mansfield Fire Department and its Safety Clowns host this community-wide the first Saturday in October as part of its National Fire Prevention Week observance.  With a goal of making learning about fire safety fun, families can visit interactive and hands-on demonstrations that will teach fire safety skills and show kids how to prevent fires in the home.  The event also features entertainment, food and family activities.
