Oxford Park Commission Holding “Trunk or Treat” Event and “Hocus Pocus” Movie Night

The Oxford Park Commission will host its inaugural Trunk or Treat event on Friday, October 21 in the parking lot outside the front of the Coach Howell Activity Center. After Trunk or Treat, the film Hocus Pocus, will be shown in the FNC Tennis Center.

Trunk or Treat is an event where members in the Oxford community are welcomed to drive their whole family to the Coach Howell Activity Center. Families will then park their car, and then fill their bags with candy and treats. Participants are encouraged to be in costume.

Local business sponsors will engage with families by sharing candy and their company’s story. Trunk or Treat is a time to build connections and share sweetness with one another.

 “We are so excited to be showing Hocus Pocus again and be able to enjoy it together outside,” said Emily Keiser, Special Events Manager.

“It’s become a tradition in the last few years.”

After this, the movie will begin at 7:30 pm and finish a little after 9 pm. Families are encouraged to bring their own snacks, blankets, and chairs.

 “Trunk or Treat events have become a very popular option for parents. Not only do we get to include various businesses and organizations in our festivities, but the parents of small children can accomplish a lot in a short time under safe conditions,” said John Davis, OPC Community Relations Director.

“It’s a win-win for us because we also get to incorporate a very popular themed movie as well. We look forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces. We know we will see a lot of great costumes.”

 Entry to the event is entirely free. Families should bring everything they would want while watching a movie, and an appetite for candy!

The Park Commission is new to hosting a Trunk or Treat, but the commission expects it will be a sweet treat for all who attend.
