WICHITA – Join Wesley Medical Center and other community sponsors at this year’s fifth annual Halloween in the Park. Come rain or shine, children of all ages are invited to join us Friday, Oct. 24 from 6:00-9:00pm at Edgemoor Park, 5815 E. Ninth St., for a free night of trick-or-treating and Halloween fun.

“Halloween in the Park is such a great family event for Wichita,” said Mollie Triplett, the hospital’s pediatric trauma coordinator. “Wesley gets to provide a fun trick-or-treating experience while educating kids on how to have a safe and enjoyable Halloween.”

Children will have the opportunity to get a free bear at Wesley’s Teddy Bear Clinic, trick-or-treat at various booths, participate in a Halloween craft project and tour an ambulance, police car and fire truck. There will also be a photo booth for families to take fun Halloween photos. The B52’s soccer team and The Force – Wichita’s new indoor football team – will also be joining the festivities.

Halloween in the Park is supported by several community sponsors, including the City of Wichita, Wichita Park & Recreation, Wichita Police Department, Pizza Hut, Sedgwick County, Wendy’s, EagleMed, 100.5 The Wolf, Farmers Insurance, BOB FM 97.1, Taco Bell, Scooter’s Coffee House, the Wichita Fire Department, Superior Rubber Stamp & Seal, Nifty Nut House, Cox Farms, Major League, Auto Masters, Davis Moore, All World Entertainment, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and Pepsi.

“It’s great to see so many community organizations and businesses come together to support this safety event,” Triplett said. “It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.”
