ERBM Recreation and Park District will be hosting our annual event, Pumpkins, Eats, and treats, on Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012. Pumpkins, Eats, & Treats have been a popular and safe destination of our local trick-or-treaters for the past 10 years with Ghostly Games, Scary Storytelling, Haunted House, Trick-or-Treating, and a parade of costumes.
To keep the tradition, we are asking local businesses to handout treats to participants. We encourage you to set up a booth/table around 3:45 p.m. on the Courthouse Lawn so we can hand out treats to around 500 trick-or-treaters.
ERBM Recreation and PArk District is challenging all businesses to decorate a room in the Haunted House, located in the Old Elementary School. If your business is interested in participation in the Haunted House, Trick-or-Treating, or BOTH, please contact me at the ERBM Recreation and Park District at 878-3403 ext. 201 by Sept 28, 2012
