More and more of Lawton's Halloween happenings are being scheduled and announced for 2022. With Halloween being on a Monday this year all the holiday events are being scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday which gives us 3 whole days to celebrate All Hallow's Eve. Plus Monday on Halloween day itself!
One of our favorite local Halloween happenings is the Ellipsis"Park-O-Treat." It's back this year and will be held at Elmer Thomas Park on Saturday, October 29th(10-29-22) from 3:00-pm until 5:00-pm. It's FREE and open to the public. Bring out the entire family for some trick or treating and celebrate Halloween at Elmer Thomas Park. There will be people set up along the paths and walkways throughout the park handing out candy to the kids, and adults who are young at heart. It's a really cool event that the entire family can enjoy.
If you're interested in volunteering at Park-O-Treat or would like to hand out candy see the poster below with all the contact information. They're also needing local and area businesses to help out by sponsoring decorations and even candy if possible. If you're interested see all the details for Park-O-Treat 2022 below:
