Chapin’s Crooked Creek Park Holds “Halloween at the Park” Event October 27
Seasonal Celebration Featured Trick-or-Treat Trail, Carnival Type Games
Chapin, SC (James Bowers) - Crooked Creek Park was the site of some holiday fun for the whole family on Friday, as the Irmo-Chapin Recreation Commission park held its annual “Halloween at The Park” event. The hallmark of the night was the trick-or-treat trail, which utilized some walking paths at the facility to provide children a safe place to trick or treat.
The trail was adorned with spots decorated by local businesses, with volunteers that handed out candy to kids. Inside The Park’s gymnasium was a carnival-type set up with games such as ball tosses and musical chairs. Members of the Chapin American Legion Post were on hand to sell concessions, with profits benefitting their projects.
Crooked Creek Park has held this fun festival for over 20 years. “It’s a fun event for the family, without any safety issues," said Jason White of Crooked Creek Park. “It’s very inclusive for the community.”
“Halloween at the Park” is one of several free events that Crooked Creek Park offers, including its end-of-school-year “Mud Mania” event and summer movie night. CCP is a longstanding fixture in the Chapin community, servicing the town in several ways through recreational activities for those of all ages.
