Fresno EOC Local Conservation Corps (LCC) invites everyone to participate in the 3rd annual “Safe Night Out” Halloween event on Thursday, October 31st, from 4 pm to 7 pm. This will be a family-friendly event, put on in partnership with the Safe Night Out Halloween Committee, providing community members with activities to ensure everyone has a safe and fun Halloween night.
“This truly is an incredible event. This gives families in southwest Fresno a place to go on Halloween,” said LCC Director, Shawn Riggins. “Before this event children would go outside of their neighborhood to trick-or-treat. Now they can stay within their community and have a fun night with their family.”
Over the past two years, nearly 5,500 community members have participated in the “Safe Night Out” event and in 2019 we are excited to see the number of families served increase. This year the event will have two haunted houses, three costume contests, a haunted maze and Trunk-or-Treat, all taking place on California Avenue between Elm Ave and Poppy Street.
Every year this event is a community effort. LCC invites everyone to attend and partner on this year’s “Safe Night Out.” The following are opportunities for individuals and/or organizations to support the festivities:
- Sponsor a game at your information table
- Donate assorted wrapped candy
- Decorate a vehicle and participate in the Trunk-or-Treat
- Donate money to aid in the purchase of food and/or decorations for the event
If you are interested in any of the opportunities listed above or have additional questions, please call Shawn Riggins at (559) 264-1048.
