INDIAN TRAIL – Even though the Town of Indian Trail had to cancel the annual Halloween Spooktacular, families can still enjoy a fun, safe and free event with drive-in style Halloween Bingo.
Families can register for one of four HalloWINGO time slots: 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Oct. 24 at Chestnut Square Park. Advance registration is required.
Each family will receive coupons/offers from local businesses. For every round of Bingo played, a winner will receive a bag of candy and other fun prizes.
Pleasant Plains Dental is sponsoring the event. Other businesses interested in being a part of the event can provide a coupon/offer that will be given away to 500 families. Call 704-821-8114 to sign up to participate as a vendor.
“This year’s Halloween event has to look a little different, but it’s going to be just as fun – and with just as much candy to go around!” said Hayden Kramer, parks and recreation manager. “HalloWINGO allows us to have a fun event for our families while still providing a way for local businesses to get involved.”
