Halloween Doors & More to take guests on magical journey


On Oct. 15, Community Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation’s 18th annual Halloween Doors & More will transform the Jacksonville Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall into a magical, superhero-themed day of family-friendly fun and entertainment.

Northeast Florida’s premier Halloween event, Halloween Doors & More will begin at 2 p.m. for fun attractions with candy, toys, food, interactive experiences and live characters. Trick or treat at 14-foot-high Fantasy Doors, stroll the Magical Meet and Greet Streets to see favorite costumed characters, show off dance moves in the Fiesta Family Disco, visit the Booutiful Salon for a spooktacular make-over and stop by the Grown-Up Grotto and Food Court to enjoy gourmet foods and drinks.

Fantasy Smiles are required, and costumes are encouraged.

Proceeds from Halloween Doors & More benefit Community PedsCare, the pediatric program of Community Hospice & Palliative Care, supporting children living with serious and life-limiting illnesses and their families. Most Community PedsCare services are provided without charge regardless of insurance coverage. All vital care and support are provided at no cost to the family, which is made possible through generous community supporters, efforts of Community Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation, and Medicare.

“The committee is hard at work and thrilled to host this spectacular annual event,” said Neill Lasher, Halloween Doors & More Event co-chair. “We look forward to welcoming children and families back, in-person, with new, exciting activities and fantastical creative doors.”
