Truck or Treat Event Draws More than 800 Attendees


Between 800 to 1000 residents attended the inaugural Truck or Treat event at Huset Park this Saturday. Costumed kids and their parents explored a variety of vehicles, including police cars, fire trucks, tow trucks, a dump truck, a garbage truck, a mail truck, a school bus, and even a Life Link air ambulance helicopter.

In addition to the organizations that provided their vehicles, Columbia Heights and its City departments also collaborated with community partners such as SACA Food Shelf & Thrift Store, HeightsNEXT, and the Columbia Heights Lions to help make the event happen. Kids received stamps as they visited each vehicle and used their collected stamps to earn a free treat bag as they left. About 330 treat bags were given away. See you again next year!
