(Forsyth County, GA) Something spooky was lurking in the woods at Old Atlanta Road Park’s during this Halloween weekend. Have no fear, though – it was just decorations for the Trick or Trail event hosted by Forsyth County Parks and Recreation.
During the event on Friday, October 28, families collected candy while enjoying a short nature walk and the kid-friendly Halloween decorations. Afterward, kids in costumes burned off their sugar rush on the playground while parents visited the pavilion to learn about upcoming winter programs.
Inside the rec center, Gym A was transformed into a kids’ fun zone with inflatable basketball and T-ball games and candy corn bowling. A team of face painters thrilled kids with mask-like designs or colorful accents for their costumes. All the events encouraged kids to play, exercise, and stay active even as they enjoyed their sweet treats.
Though Halloween falls on Monday this year, there were plenty of family-friendly events throughout the county over the past weekend. The Collection hosted its Enchanted Halloween event on Friday, October 28. Attractions included trick-or-treating at participating stores, a costume contest, balloon artists, and stilt walkers. Bach 2 Rock from Johns Creek provided music.
On Saturday, October 29, Vickery Village held its annual Spooktacular Trunk-or-Treat event. Families came out for trick-or-treating, costume contests, and music provided by DJ “DD.” After dark, live music by Retrograde kept the party going for dinner visitors.
With several local places of worship also hosting fall festivals or trunk-or-treat events, Forsyth County families had plenty of choices to enjoy safe spooky fun.
