Trunk or Treat - Now
called "Sandy Creek Spooktacular"
is always held on October 31st.
Trunk or Treat has now changed to "The Sandy Creek Spooktacular" since we have moved the location this year to our new city park. Then new park is located adjacent to Rubye McKeown City park at the corner of North St. and Alexander across from the Sheriff's Department. This is a safe, fun event for the whole family. A safe and secure opportunity for kids to trick or treat in the heart of downtown. Hundreds of kids and their families come out in an assortment of costumes to partake in this 3-hour event.
Local businesses and organizations set up and compete for best trunk (or table), decorating their tables and handing out treats. Judges award prizes for the best trunk and Brookshire's provides gift cards and other prizes to the top three winners in each age category of a costume contest.
In 2014 the Rains County Historical Society and Women's Service Group worked together to add even more fun to the event by hosting
a Monster Bash at Heritage Park following Trunk or Treat. It has now become an annual event, hosting games, movies, a haunted house and yummy treats at the Heritage Park to raise funds for the host organizations.
This year's event will be held Thursday, October 31st, 5:30-9:00 pm
We will have a small tractor pulling trailers of hay. All rides are free!
Movie in the Park
We'll be showing the movie Goosebumps II. The movie is free. You'll need to bring a blanket or a lawn chair. There will also be free popcorn. Other food items may be available.
Brookshire's will host a children's and pet costume contest. Prizes will be awarded! Brookshire's will also be serving hot dogs, drinks, and chips for $2.
Though we won't be having trunks this year, please still bring a table and decorate your space however you choose. Vehicles are not allowed onto the park grounds, but we will mark off space for you to bring a table. We'll also have golf carts and rangers available to help you bring your items in and out. You may begin setting up as early as 3 pm. Trick or treaters will be let in the park at 5:30 pm. You must be set up and ready to pass out candy at 5:30 pm. You must provide your own table but if you'd like to reserve a space, call 903-473-2465 x 102
