Park Board Seeking Volunteers for Trunk or Treat in October.
Maybe it seems too early to be thinking about Halloween, but the Swansea Park Board and the Swansea Patriots are already planning their annual
“Spooktacular” for Saturday October 26th, at Mel Price Park.
The organizations are looking for individuals, families, clubs or
businesses who would like to participate in the "Trunk or Treat" and
hand out treats to ‘little goblins’. If interested, please come to the
Government Center at 1444 Boul Ave and fill out an application. All
participants must do so to gain entry. The Park will be turned into the
"Wicked Forest” with many attractions for kids and families to enjoy.
