This is a FREE event for the entire community. Come and enjoy the blessings of the harvest season along with fellowship with friends and family.

Family events will take place from 5-7; at 7 the children can go “Trunk or Treating” and receive candy from the backs of vehicles gathered in the lower level parking lot. Family-friendly costumes will make the event enjoyable for children of all ages.

Indoor activities will include games, a make-n-take craft, and a complimentary picture (one picture per family please). Enjoy some homemade chili and beverages. Goody bags will be provided to help carry all the loot.

Outdoor activities will feature a bonfire, open fire pits for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, popcorn, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, and the BST&G Fire District’s equipment. The evening will come to a close with the popular Trunk-or-Treat activity.

In the event of inclement weather, many of the outdoor activities, including Trunk-or-Treat, will be moved indoors. Come and enjoy the evening rain or shine.
