Little ghosts and goblins have plenty of places to go this Halloween for safe trick or treating.
Salina Downtown is again sponsoring a safe trick or treat event from 4:00 to 5:30. Primarily on Santa Fe, families are encouraged to bring their children to go door-to-door among the Salina Downtown businesses. Salina Downtown members supply their own “treats” and are encouraged to dress up. Every year 2,500 to 3,000 kids enjoy the event.
The Salina Central Mall is also offering a safe trick or treating event. Trick or treating inside the mall is from 5:00 until 7:00 Halloween night.
Kansas Wesleyan University will host a “Trunk or Treat”, an event designed to give the community an opportunity for a safe trick-or-treating experience. The event, hosted by the Office of Student Development, will feature decorated vehicles of faculty, staff, and student organizations. Participants will be allowed to trick-or-treat from each vehicle. In addition, Jeff Graham of the Salina Paranormal Investigative Research Team (S.P.I.R.i.T) will be on hand to discuss his ghost hunting adventures and equipment. “Trunk or Treat” is free and open to the public and will be held on Thursday, October 31, from 6-8 p.m. in the south parking lot of Pioneer Hall.
Christ the King Lutheran Church is also offering a “Trunk-or-Treat”. Haunted themes, popular comic characters, and more will greet youth upon their arrival. Church members will volunteer their time and decorate trunks of their cars and vehicles. In its fifth year, the event will also include games for kids of all ages. Church members and friends in costume will begin handing out candy at 5:00 p.m. and will end activities at 7:00 p.m. Christ the King Lutheran Church is located at 111 W. Magnolia, Salina. Trunk-or-Treat is a safe and fun event for families to go trick-or-treating on Halloween. This event is free to all who attend.
