The Badlands Community Facility (BCF) just wrapped up their first "Ghouls, Goblins, Grind" Halloween event.

Weights were lifted and things got spooky. Admission was free for the day and costumes were encouraged.

"Inside we had the music blaring, and we had people lifting weights, and lots of candy," explained BCF Program Administrator, Amber Leavitt.gym3

The idea came to her through another gym's social media.

"I saw a video online of a gym that was doing it and I was like, 'we need to do that here!' The feedback that we got was that it was lots of fun and that we should do it next year. We have a lot of people who saw it online and they were upset because they couldn't come this year, so we have some people looking forward to next year," continued Leavitt.

The BCF staff decorated the entire gym to give it a spooky atmosphere that matched the costumes brought in.

"We had a couple of Wonder Womens in there, which was fantastic. Watching Wonder Woman lift weights in the gym was wonderful. We had a Chuckie, a Charlie Brown, a Ninja Turtle, a Shrek and a Popeye," chuckled Leavitt.
