It's Halloween!

Happy Halloween from all of us at PlaygroundEquipment.com!

Did you have a fun Halloween tradition? I grew up living surrounded by cornfields and my closest neighbor was a quarter mile down the road. My parents used to take us trick or treating to my grandparents' houses and family friend's houses. Sometimes we would get to go around my grandparent's neighborhood as well. It was always a lot of fun!

Last year was the first year I have lived in a neighborhood and was so excited to have my first round of trick-or-treaters! It will definitely be something I look forward to every year.

I also love to carve pumpkins. It is probably my favorite part about Halloween! My mom taught me to sprinkle cinnamon inside the pumpkin before you light the candle and it makes the pumpkin smell very good. I've also painted pumpkins, but carving is still my favorite.

We hope you all have a safe and fun Halloween!

Revitalizing a Childhood Playground

Recently, the Cape Cod Times published a story about a local teen who saw his childhood playground was falling apart and vowed to raise money to see it restored. Over the course of three years, Jake Barry raised $42,000 for his childhood playground. Through fundraising and donations, Barry was able to purchase new equipment and have it installed.

We love seeing someone taking the initiative to restore a playground. Children in that community will be able to enjoy the new playground for years to come.

If you are looking to revitalize a playground in your town this is the perfect success story to get you started!
