Safe Halloween at Weatherford College will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31, in the Couts Hall parking lot facing College Park Drive.
For 19 years the Weatherford College Police Department has hosted Safe Halloween, and what started as a small event inside the Doss Student Center has grown to attract approximately 7,000 people each trick-or-treat season.
“This is a great way for the Weatherford College Police Department to give back to the community, and give the kids a safe place to trick-or-treat,” WCPD Chief Paul Stone said. “We also ask for a donation of a can of food from each visitor. This canned food will be delivered to the Parker County Senior Center.”
The free event includes a variety of booths with games, face painting, an ongoing costume contest throughout the evening and, of course, candy.
- Community members who would like to donate bags of candy for Safe Halloween may do so at the WCPD office located in Couts Hall.
- Prior to opening to the general public, special needs children are invited for early admission at 5 p.m.
