Patience is a Virtue

We are expecting a great turnout. Traffic in and around Harris Road will likely be heavy. We ask for your patience both entering and exiting the park and while waiting in line for attractions.

Event is Rain or Shine

In case of severe weather, the event will be moved inside the Joyner Park Community Center at a limited capacity.

HalloweenWhen does Wake Forest recognize Halloween?

Since Halloween is always October 31, that’s the day the Town of Wake Forest encourages families to go door-to-door in costumes for candy and fun - regardless of the day of the week in which it falls.

The Wake Forest Police Department also recommends that little ghosts and goblins trick-or-treat between the hours of 6 and 8 p.m.
