The hours for Zoo Boo are 9 am to 12 pm. However, I think the original poster was asking when trick-or-treating (ie. going house to house) is on base and downtown. I am interested in knowing, too, since I'm not sure if the town churches would encourage trick or treating on Sunday.
I called Security Forces and they told me that Trick or Treating on base will be on Sunday the 31st from 1700-1900. (I don't know about downtown but we weren't going to be going down there anyways so it's not a big need to know sorta thing for us personally.)
Last year several of the churches in the area got together and had a "harvest festival" or "carnival" at the sports complex on 10th street as an alternative to Halloween. Does anyone know if they are doing that again this year?
No they are not, they tried but everyone waited till the last moment to get it together and it was canceled..
Awwww, that's too bad. I know that it was done as a ministry outreach and was free, but I would have been willing to pay a ticket price for the safety and fun of it. We really enjoyed it last year along with the zoo boo. I guess just the zoo boo this year and a couple of neighbors for trick-or-treating.
