For Immediate Release: Springfield Fire Department to host first "Truck or Treat" event Thursday evening
The Springfield Fire Department is partnering with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board for its first ever "Truck or Treat" event, held tonight at Fire Station No. 8. During the event, families can come in costume to meet Springfield firefighters, tour the fire station, see the department's new apparatus, play games, paint pumpkins and enjoy Culver's ice cream – all for free! The event will also be a safe spot for trick-or-treating.
The event is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday at Fire Station No. 8, located at 1405 S. Scenic Ave. Guests are asked to park on the east side of Scenic at Ewing Park. A crossing guard will be on hand to help families safely cross the street.
Families with children 5 and under can get a sneak peek of "Truck or Treat" from 4 to 5 p.m. In addition to the festivities, these families can also learn about Springfield Public Schools' Parents as Teachers program.
