City of Horseshoe Bend hosts Halloween Trunk or Treat on Oct. 31st! (Posted by Ginger Smith)

The Horseshoe Bend Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that the City of Horseshoe Bend will host a Halloween Trunk or Treat. The event will take place on the lower level of the Diamond B parking lot on October 31, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.

The gazebo will be decorated and reserved as a free photo booth area, so be sure to bring your phone or camera. Horseshoe Bend Fire and Rescue will give away free hot dogs to kids in costume; burgers and hot dogs will also be available for purchase. The DJ Doctor will provide live music, and there will be two rows set up for trick-or-treaters to collect candy from. One row will be reserved for parked automobiles and the other row will be for tables and lawn chairs. To ensure the safety of all those ghosts and goblin’s, everyone handing out candy should be parked and/or set by 5:00 p.m.

“A lot of people enjoy seeing the creative costumes and hearing the kids laugh and play, but they don’t usually have many trick-or-treaters stop at their house,” explained Michelle Grabowski, Recorder/Treasure. “We’re encouraging them to bring a lawn chair and sit with friends while handing out candy at this Halloween Safe Zone, because we usually have around 200 people in attendance.” The Chamber would also like to see businesses participating in this event by decorating a table or trunk.
