SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The spooky season is here! Take a look through this list of Halloween events happening throughout the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
Friday, Oct. 29
The Bluffton Police Department is hosting its inaugural Safety Spooktacular at Oscar Frazier Park (77 Shults Road). Stop by between 5 and 7 p.m.
At this free community event, Bluffton police officers will be grilling hotdogs and all public safety organizations will hand out candy. All attendees, regardless of age, are welcome and encouraged to wear costumes.
“Our Safety Spooktacular was born out of the unfortunate decision to cancel National Night Out,” Bluffton Police Chief Stephenie Price said. “However, when Mother Nature and thunderstorms got in the way of our plans, an opportunity presented itself to connect with our community on different night. We added in some grilling, some thrilling costumes and candy to make this event more fun than originally planned. We hope to see you there, in costumes!”
The Savannah Police Department is participating in two trunk or treat events Friday.
The Northwest Precinct will host trunk-or-treating at their station at 602 E. Lathrop Avenue between 6 to 8 p.m. Stop by for fun games and candy.
