Superheroes, princesses, ghosts and goblins – get ready! The Town of Farragut will host the 21st annual Freaky Friday Fright Nite on Friday, October 27 from 5 to 7pm at Mayor Bob Leonard Park on Watt Road. The event will provide a safe place for children to participate in Halloween activities while benefiting the Knoxville Ronald McDonald House.
Children ages 12 and under and in costume are invited to “trick or treat” on the walk trail while local businesses, community groups and Town of Farragut volunteers hand out treats and provide games with prizes and cookie decorating. This is a free event, but participants are asked to bring items to benefit the local Ronald McDonald House.
The Town has partnered with the Knoxville Ronald McDonald House each year of the event since 2000 in order to collect essential items that the House needs to continue day-to-day operations. The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children being served by area hospitals and depends on community donations to operate. Families are provided all services for a nominal fee or free of charge if they are unable to pay.
Don’t forget to stop by the Knoxville Moms Blog tent, as we always have some great goodies for the kiddos!
