TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Families put on those Halloween costumes and get ready to collect some candy.

Kilie Smith the city’s director of recreation, said this event is a fun and safe way to go trick-or-treating.

“I think it’s so important to have these types of events to really welcome the entire family to enjoy the spirit of Halloween together. It brings the whole community together in really safe area. We love to make sure that we have events that are available for everyone at a low cost for some family fun. It’s just so important to bring everybody together to spread some of that Halloween spirit,” Smith said.
