Goodwill of the Heartland and Rock Island Parks and Recreation will present the free Fright Night in the Park on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Schwiebert Riverfront Park in Rock Island.
Enjoy trick-or-treating, a costume contest, and a fun and safe Halloween event, as the first 500 children will receive a free goodie bag. Over 30 community agencies will host various activities and/or trick-or-treating, according to a Monday release. A live DJ will be spinning fun dance music, Rock Island’s own Metro Youth Dance Team, Royal Drama Dance Team and a “thrilling” dance performance will round out the night.
Secret guest judges will be walking around the park handing out costume contest prize certificates to be redeemed for a special prize. You never know who may be watching!
Fright Night is made possible by the help of contributors: presenting sponsor Goodwill of the Heartland, Downtown Rock Island, Icons Martini, Daiquiri Factory, Target – Davenport, State Rep Mike Halpin, Midwest Complete Construction, Sanitary Cleaners, McManus Orthodontics, Jeff James Entertainment, and Pieler Productions.
