The Battle Creek Police Department will hold the eighth annual Trunk or Treat as a drive-thru event – join the fun from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30.
Families will attend this year at Bailey Park, 1392 Capital Ave. NE. Enter to the south on Wagner Drive, follow north and through the parking lot to collect candy, and exit on Eaton Street. Trunk or Treat is free and open to the public.
We ask families to stay in their vehicles during the event. Law enforcement vehicles will set up around the parking lot, and use sections of PVC pipe to slide candy into each child’s treat bag. Staff will wear masks and gloves, and sanitize the pipes as needed.
Police staff worked carefully through plans for this year’s event, with the Calhoun County Public Health Department and others, to make sure it is safe and enjoyable for our families.
Anyone interested in supporting the event can donate to the Battle Creek Police Department Law Enforcement Community Project Fund, a fund of the Battle Creek Community Foundation. Please make checks payable to BCCF/PDLAW and mail to Battle Creek Community Foundation, 32 W. Michigan Ave., Suite 1, Battle Creek, MI 49017. Those interested also can donate on the Communication Foundation’s website, https://www.bccfoundation.org/fund/battle-creek-police-department-law-enforcement-community-education-community-project-fund.
We appreciate everyone’s support for this great event. Please be well and celebrate with safety in mind. The county’s COVID-19 pandemic response created a video to share the federal and state Halloween recommendations. You can see it here on the city’s YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/fonW7UA6w2k.
