TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — As Halloween creeps closer, the Terre Haute Parks and Recreation Department have started their annual Halloween events.

To kick off these events, they hosted their 5th annual trunk or treat at Deming Park. Families came dressed in costumes and visited each trunk to receive candy.

The next event will be their Un-haunted Halloween Happenings, which is also at Deming Park. There will be train rides, hayrides, free games, a straw maze, and of course more candy.

Director of Recreation Kilie Smith said these events are designed to give all families the opportunity to enjoy Halloween festivities.

“We love to provide a safe and fun event for the whole family to enjoy. So, it’s so important for us all to come together as a community,” Smith said.

Un-haunted Halloween Happenings will be on October 20 and October 21, from 6pm-9pm.
