Plans under way for annual Safe Halloween at Weatherford College

October 25, 2012 by Randy Keck

Free community event

By Linda Bagwell, Weatherford College
 Weatherford College will once again be a spooky (but well-lighted and safe place, of course) for all the little ghosts, goblins, zombies, mummies and monsters and assorted others to Trick-or-Treat this Halloween night, Oct. 31. The annual Safe Halloween, sponsored by the College’s Police Department, has attracted thousands of people over the years, and officials are expecting at least 4,000 trick-or-treaters this years.

Safe Halloween is a free event for the public to enjoy an evening of worry-free, safe trick-or-treating. Dainty princesses and brides, tiny soldiers, cowboys and little police officers, firefighters, alike, can join in the fun with a huge bounce house, game booths, face-painting and costume contests throughout the evening and "go home with more candy than they can have eat in a month,” said WC Chief of Police Paul Stone, who coordinates the annual event.

"Last, year, we distributed more than a ton of candy donated by area merchants, service clubs, WC staff and community members, and we collected well over a thousand cans of food (“admission” is one can per attendee), which we delivered to a local charity.”

Area businesses are invited to participate and set up game booths. Those interested in setting up a fun booth for the trick-or-treaters at Safe Halloween, scheduled for Wed., Oct. 31, 6-9 p.m., in the new parking lot behind Couts Hall on the Weatherford campus, are invited to call 817-594-1731 for more information.

“It gets bigger and better every year, and we are very excited to offer this event to the community,” said Stone. “It’s a safe place for children to trick or treat, and we have a lot of fun doing it for the kids.”
