Our annual community event Treats in the Park is back!

Saturday 30th October 2021, 3pm - 7pm

Our 19th Treats event will include 6 Treats stations, inflatable rides, food stalls, fun activities, community information, entertainment, costume competition, prizes, skate comp and much much more.

Cost
Treat Tickets are $5 each and allows children to collect treats from the treat stations and enjoy unlimited access to the huge inflatable rides. When you arrive look out for the Lodge Registration tent to purchase the treat tickets or you can drop into the centre the week before to purchase tickets. Spectators are free.

Bring a little reusable bag to collect Treats.

Note: The money we collect for registration pays for half of the event costs and our funders and supporters and our own fundraising covers the remaining part.


Costume Judging
A big part of the event is the costumes!
The costume showcase will take place at 5pm and 6pm all ages at the same time, just come to the side of the stage 5 mins before. You can only enter once per night.

Background
The first Treats in the Park event began in 1998 when at a community meeting the issue was identified that a large amount of children were wandering the streets late into the night collecting treats door-to-door on the night of Halloween. In 2003, due to the high level of feedback from residents and community leaders to hold this event again it was decided this would become an annual event.


For the past 3 decades the Western Community Centre has helped facilitate events using them to provide opportunities for the community to come together to strengthen relationships, create vibrancy and celebrate our diversity and strength.
