As October comes to an end, one local church looks to start a new tradition of offering their community a safe and fun Halloween night event.
Marking their first year in offering a Halloween event, Williams Community Church is going all out to offer a fun, free, sweet, and festive family event.
The inaugural Trunk or Treat event will be held from 5 PM to 8 PM on Halloween night, Tuesday, Oct. 31, in the church’s parking lot, located at 315 9th Street in Williams, at the cross streets of 9th and C Streets.
“In a culture where our parents increasingly find concern about their children’s safety, when trick-or-treating, we wanted to be able to offer an environment where the entire family would feel safe welcome, while also enjoying the chance to know others in their community,” church organizers said. Church members are bringing out their vehicles, packaged candy, with popcorn and juice pouches being offered to little ones that come trick-or-treating.
There is no cost to participate. This is a free event with free items and candy
A bounce house has been secured for children 8 and under, as well as visits by Williams police department and fire departments, along with their fire truck.
The event will be held rain or shine and will have 15-25 vehicles with candy to offer. There will also be games and music going on, throughout the event.
