Halloween Boo Bash is Friday, Halloween trick-or-treating is always October 31

Monday, October 24, 2022 - 12:35pm

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department will host its annual Halloween Boo Bash this Friday, Oct. 28, from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road. Presented by Capital Chevrolet, the Halloween Boo Bash is a free, family-oriented festival for children ages 12 and younger.

This year’s festivities will include a variety of ghostly games and activities, along with free pumpkin giveaways - while supplies last. Costumes are optional, but best outfits will be featured on the Town’s website and social media pages. For more information about the Halloween Boo Bash, visit https://bit.ly/WFBooBash.

In addition to Capital Chevrolet, the following local businesses have generously contributed to this year’s Halloween Boo Bash: Civic Federal Credit Union, Passanante's Home Food Services, Girls Scouts - NC Coastal Pines, Burn Boot Camp, Pivot Physical Therapy, Elan Dental, Christi Spencer State Farm, Triangle Family Dentistry, Carolina Orthodontics & Children's Dentistry, Everbrook Academy, Legacy Heritage, ISI Elite Training and Birkner Insurance.

On a related note, the Town of Wake Forest often receives inquiries concerning when families should go trick-or-treating. Since Halloween is always October 31, that’s the day the Town encourages families to go door-to-door in costumes for candy and fun – regardless of the day of the week on 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.
