WICHITA – Join Wesley Children’s Foundation as it hosts the seventh annual Halloween in the Park event, a popular community party that attracts thousands of children every year.

Come rain or shine, children of all ages are invited to join us Friday, Oct. 28, from 6-9 p.m. at Edgemoor Park, 5815 E. Ninth St., for a free night of trick-or-treating and Halloween fun. Dozens of community sponsors will have booths and fun activities to entertain and delight our guests.

“Halloween in the Park is such a great family event for Wichita,” said Mollie Triplett, Wesley pediatric trauma coordinator.  “The event provides 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 Halloween craft projects and tour an ambulance, police car and fire truck. There also will be a photo booth for families to take fun Halloween photos.

Halloween in the Park is supported by several community sponsors, including the City of Wichita, Wichita Park & Recreation, Wichita Police Department, Wichita Fire Department, Sedgwick County 911, Wendy’s, EagleMed, 100.5 The Wolf, Pepsi, BOB FM 97.1, Cricket Wireless, McConnell Air Force Base, Cox Farms, Davis Moore,  Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, Lowe’s Home Improvement, IHOP, Wichita Thunder and many more.

“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.”
