Hundreds of people typically attend the festivities that includes costumes, pumpkins, hayrides, carnival games, prizes and snacks. This year’s event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26.
This year, there will be no Lion’s Club costume parade from the Middle School. However, the Lion’s Club will host a costume contest and award prizes in several age groups at the start of the event.
Activities include a mini-pumpkin patch with free pumpkins for the first 400 children participants. The West Carrollton Nazarene Church and the staff from the West Carrollton Branch Library will also be hosting activities.
Two days later, on Oct. 28, the parks and recreation department will host a ‘Sniff A Treat’ event for dogs and their owners at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at Hintermeister Park, located at 1300 Mayrose Dr.
Dog treats will be hidden throughout the park for dogs to sniff out. There will also be a costume contest for the dogs. Admission is free. All dogs must remain on leashes during the event.
