The campus of Weatherford College was again transformed into a place where little ghosts, goblins and monsters of all kinds could go and “Trick-or-Treat.”
On Saturday, the College’s Police Department hosted its annual Safe Halloween event which saw a record crowd numbering more than 7,000 in attendance.
“It was one of the best events I can remember in a long time,” Chief Paul Stone said. “Great weather, great turnout.”
He said the canned food drive was also a success, receiving approximately 3,000 cans of food, which will be donated to the Parker County Senior Center.
More than a ton of candy was distributed thanks to the donations from community members, WC faculty, staff and students as well as money donations from several service clubs.
Stone thanked WC and the community for its support with the Safe Halloween event.
“It is always a pleasure and honor to do this for the children of our community,” Stone said. “We could not do this if not for the support of our community.”
Stone said that in the last few years, he has had more and more parents tell him they remember coming to the event when they were kids, and how many good memories they have.
“Thanks to all who have helped make this event so memorable,” he added.
