Come on out and have an old-fashioned good time. For a small fee you get so much: hot dogs for roasting, chips, carrots, our famous baked beans, marshmallows, and drinks. Hayrack ride, mid-1800s Autumn Play Party activities (sack races, fortune telling) are included, and children and adult costumes are strongly encouraged.
Come celebrate Halloween the fun, safe way at Proctor Center’s Trunk or Treat. We will block off an entire block around Proctor, put cars together, then open the trunks to reveal Halloween-themed decorations. Kids can walk from trunk to trunk to look at the decorations and receive candy and treats. This event provides a controlled and safe family environment for trick-or-treaters ages 1 to 14.
We encourage parents to provide candy to other trick or treaters from their trunk as well.
