Enter Hiller from Atkinson for Halloween gathering

One of the city’s most popular events, Halloween at Hiller Park, takes place this evening from 6 to 8, and those attending must use the Atkinson Road to enter the park.

“We want everyone to enjoy the event, but you must enter from the west end of the park, at Atkinson Road,” said Sherry Bell, Parks & Recreation Director. “The Hiller Drive area will be used only as an exit. This plan is only in effect for Halloween at Hiller.”

Children ages 11 and younger can go trick-or-treating with local business set up along the Barbara Ferrill Softball Fields, and enjoy games.

Admission is free to this family-friendly and safety-conscious Halloween event.
