It’s Time to Get Spooky: Indian Trail’s Halloween Spooktacular Returns

Halloween Spooktacular

After a year’s hiatus, Indian Trail’s Halloween Spooktacular is back and is going to be better than ever! So, put on your favorite costume, grab your candy bag and head over to Chestnut Square Park (320 Chestnut Parkway) on Friday, Oct. 22, from 6-9 p.m.

In addition to the famous Trunk-or-Treat line, families can enjoy a number of other festivities happening around the park, including a pumpkin archery contest, costume contest, craft table, carnival games, storytime with the Union County Library, a 360 video booth and 1,500 free pumpkins supplied by Randy Simpson Produce. A DJ will be playing classic Halloween tunes, and a stilt walker, magician and sword juggler will be providing entertainment throughout the night. Pleasant Plains Dental will again sponsor this year’s event and serve as judges for the costume contest.

“This year, we will have 75 trunks lined up to give out candy to trick-or-treaters,” said Hayden Kramer, parks and recreation director. “Each trunk will have a minimum of 1,500 pieces of candy for more than 110,000 pieces of candy total! The Halloween Spooktacular is one of our favorite events of the year because of all the kids and families who go all out to join in on the fun and engage with us and their community. We love seeing all of the creative costumes that come through the event.”

Food, including hot dogs, pizza, chips and drinks, will be available for cash-only purchase. All proceeds will go toward purchasing Christmas gifts for Holiday Heroes.

Parking will be available at Chestnut Square Park and the Indian Trail Town Hall on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional parking will be available on Blythe Drive, which connects to the park by way of the Affinity Trail. All kids attending should be accompanied by a guardian during the event. Please, no pets.

“The Halloween Spooktacular provides a safe environment for kids to trick-or-treat and enjoy the fun of Halloween,” said Abbey Ball, communications director. “With all of the candy, games and other activities at this year’s event, no one will go home disappointed. Thank you to Pleasant Plains Dental, Randy Simpson Produce and all of the other businesses and organizations that help make this such a special evening for local families.”
