Texarkana Texas Trunk or Treat – October 31
Don’t miss out on the Texarkana Texas Parks Department “Trunk or Treat in Spring Lake Park” on Halloween afternoon. This is a drive-thru event. All traffic will enter the park from Mall Drive, drive around the block where the decorated vehicles will be parked to collect your treats, and then exit back out that same way to Mall Drive.
To be sure that we can all social distance and stay safe, we ask that everyone stay in your car as you go through the event. We will deliver the treats to you at your vehicle as you stop at each location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate anyone who simply walks up. If your club, church, or business would like to be a part of this contact the Parks Department at 903-798-3978.
