There are no streets to cross or flashlights to hold for families who want to take part in a still-growing fall tradition. Little ghosts and goblins are invited to don their Halloween costumes and bring their treat bags for the annual SpookWalk trick-or-treat event held on October 20th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. More than 30 local businesses and organizations participate by setting up stations along the River Front Park recreational trail and give goodies to about 1,500 trick-or-treaters from Charles City and the surrounding area. This event is geared toward families with children 12 years and under. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
