Trunk-or-Treat, Halloween Hustle set in Clintonville

The third annual St. Rose/St. Mary’s 5K Halloween Hustle and Trunk-or-Treat will be held Oct. 26 at 140 Auto St., Clintonville. Costume contest categories are for kids, adults and groups.

Trunk-or-Treat will run from 5:15-5:45 p.m. This event allows children to select treats from trunks and participate in games. The $10 cost includes a bag, T-shirt, book and other goodies.

Costumes are encouraged for the family-friendly Halloween Hustle. Last year, nearly 250 people participated. This year’s event starts at 6 p.m. Cost is $30 per person and includes water stations and marshals along the lit course, a T-shirt, lighted safety armband, other gifts and automatic entry into a prize drawing. Group discount information is available on the event’s Facebook page.

Free child care for 5K and Trunk-or-Treat participants is available during the Halloween Hustle.

The end of the course features a spooky photo booth, and food will be available to purchase. A prize drawing will round out the night.

The goal of the event is to provide a safe, fun Halloween event for the entire family, said Lisa Olmsted, event organizer and admissions coordinator at St. Rose/St. Mary’s School. “We are thrilled to be partnering with so many local businesses and community leaders, and we are excited to make Clintonville, St. Rose/St. Mary’s School and the Halloween Hustle a holiday destination tradition,” Olmsted said.
