No tricks, just treats

One of the many Halloween displays erected by campers at Flint Creek Water Park.

Trick-or-Treaters who made their way through the camping area at Flint Creek Water Park Saturday should be just about recovered from their sugar coma in time for Merchants Trick-or-Treat in downtown Wiggins Thursday.

Crowds packed the paths at Flint Creek, enjoying the elaborate displays erected by campers while filling their bags with goodies.

This year’s Merchant Trick-or-Treat run between 3-5 p.m. and will have an added aspect of trunk-or-treat booths in Blaylock Park.

The event was taken over by the Wiggins Police Department, and will be followed by a Night Out Against Crime event in the park between 5-7 p.m.

Wiggins Police Department officers will man a booth and offer children instructions on stranger danger and how to stay safe.

There will be Neighborhood Watch representatives and organizers and a demonstration for parents and youth on how to spot and avoid online predators.

Free hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks will be served.
