 Weather Update: Due to the weather forecasted for this Thursday, Fright Night will be moved up to Wednesday, October 27th.   

 Get your costumes ready for a free Halloween event just for kids! Goodwill of the Heartland and Rock Island Parks and Recreation presents Fright Night in the Park on Wednesday, October 27th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Schwiebert Riverfront Park in Rock Island.

Enjoy trick-or-treating, a costume contest, and a fun and safe Halloween event! The first 500 children will receive a free goodie bag! Over 30 community agencies will host various activities and/or trick-or-treating. A live DJ will be spinning fun dance music, Rock Island’s own Metro Youth Dance Team, Royal Drama Dance Team and a “thrilling” dance performance will round out the night.
