A Soddies’ “Saturday Spooktacular” outdoor family movie night is scheduled for this weekend, Saturday, October 17, at Hodgetown. It is a way for us to enjoy a socially-distanced and safe Halloween to downtown Amarillo. The event will feature the showing of Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” along with pre-movie, socially-distanced trick-or-treating around the concourse, adult, child and family costume contests, and more.

Social distancing protocols will be in effect and enforced by Hodgetown staff during the event and masks are required upon entry, exit, and while moving about the stadium, but can be removed while seated. Entrance to the event will be located at the left-field (north) gates, which open at 5pm, and the movie is scheduled to start at 7pm.

From 5pm to 6:30pm, event attendees and families can participate in outdoor, socially-distanced trick-or-treating around the stadium concourse. Sponsors and partners from around the community will be safely distanced at individual tables for spaced groups to visit and grab pre-packaged goodie/candy bags. Additionally, there will be a costume contest held for best individual adult/child costume and best group/family costume. All costumes worn at the event must be family-friendly.

A variety of movie seating will be available for purchase, including on-field, reserved square spaces, hospitality suites, and individual bowl seats. A limited numer of on-field, marked square spaces are available to reserve in four or eight-person capacity. Four-person squares (10’x10’) are $32 and eight-person (10’x20’) squares are $64. Blankets and pillows are acceptable to bring on to the field, but folding chairs are prohibited.
