St. James Midway Community Park 

Everyone is invited to come out and join St. James Midway Community Park for their annual Trunk or Treat, 5–6:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 31. If you are handing out candy we ask that you please park in the grass area with others handing out candy.

Tims Ford

On Oct. 25, Tims Ford will be hosting a Trunk or Treat and Haunted Hike at the Devil’s Step boat ramp and Fairview Campground, located at 129 Fairview Campground Rd. The boat ramp will be closed to all boat traffic on Oct. 25. The Trunk or Treat will begin at 5:30 p.m. We will have agency trunks in the Boat Ramp parking lot, and the trunk or treat will continue into the day use area of the campground. 

After the day use area, trunk or treaters can continue into the campground to trick-or-treat at campsites. Participating campers will be given an orange glow stick to hang from their site marker, much like in typical trick-or-treating you look for a house with the porch light on. Participation in the Trunk or Treat is free. 

Beginning at 6:45 p.m., we will be operating a haunted trail on Devil’s Step Island. We will take 20 people per hike, shuttle them by boat to the island where they will have a guided haunted hike, then shuttle them back to shore. Cost for the Haunted Hike is $5 per person, kids under 10 are $2.50. Tickets may be purchased the day of the event on site, and may be purchased for any specific time slot as the shuttles will be leaving every 15 minutes. The hike is expected to last from 20-30 minutes and is rated PG-13.

Tracy City

Tracy City will host a Tricks and Treats Halloween Bash from 4–7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 31, at the downtown Tracy City Mini-Park. There will be free activities, hot dogs, drinks, games and hayrides.
