Halloween tradition to continue
Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor to host free trick-or-treat event
A local senior living community will continue its popular Halloween parade event with a twist.
Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor is inviting community children to dress in costume and come to the campus, 1711 N. Fourth Street, for an outdoor parade from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. October 31. Residents will line the sidewalks in front of the apartment entrance around the circle drive and watch the goblins parade by, showing off their costumes.
Children are encouraged to practice social distancing and safety measures to protect themselves and the residents. A bag of treats will be handed to each child at the end of the parade route. Tickets are not required.
“We hope everyone enjoys this twist on our cherished and fun Halloween tradition,” said Sarah Griggs, executive director. “This is an event that our residents, and the children alike, enjoy every year, and we’re happy to be able to bring it back with a few concessions for safety.”
