Safe Trick or Treating, Zombie Walk, Halloween Parties – Weekend Happenings
Bring your ghouls and goblins to Lite Rock’s Safe Trick or Treating from 11a-1p Sunday, October 30 at Birch Grove Park in Northfield.
Over the many years we’ve held this event, we have turned the Halloween experience into a well-oiled machine. A really fun, well-oiled machine!
You and the family are invited to come enjoy the season and participate or just watch the many fun things we have in store.
Lite Rock’s Safe trick or treating includes a costume contest, hayrides, pumpkin picking, a Monster Mash” dance-a-thon and lots of candy. Don't miss a special appearance by family fun magician, Stretch, the Silly Man!
We will also take full advantage of all the kid-friendly things at Birch Grove Park, including their great playground.
Lite Rock’s Safe Trick or Treating is powered by ShopRite, Miller’s Haunted Hayride in Hammonton and Petrosh’s Big Top Tent Rental.
