Additions to the schedule extend the day on both sides of the main event, starting with an 8:00 a.m 3K Haunted Fun Run. The run starts at Lake Ozark Coney Island/Sugar Shack Ice Cream and will run past the Heritage Elementary School. A nominal fee will be charged which the students will donate to Citizens Against Domestic Violence. Back at Coney Island, a $5 pancake breakfast from 9:00 – 11:00 will raise funds for BDSA special events.

Another new activity is TEEN NIGHT. From 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., the evening features a scary movie, a bonfire and Dance Party with DJ Bob Dodd. These new events are the result of the middle school students of Mrs. Misti Maples, School of the Osage “Tribe Time” group called, “The Bagnell Dam Action Team.” This group of 12 and 13 year olds are working with a liaison of the special events committee of BDSA to weave their new ideas into the existing framework of the established Halloween on the Strip event. These students will also judge the Pumpkin Decorating Contest which is open to the public to bring their already decorated pumpkins to Luby’s Stage for judging after 2 p.m.

After the full day of family activities, night comes to life on the Bagnell Dam Strip with a little spice. Several establishments will be celebrating the holiday with their own special events. For example, Tucker’s Shuckers will offer a $1500 prize for their Saturday night adult costume contest.
