The Soddy-Daisy Community Library has teamed up with David Casteel from the David Casteel State Farm Agency, to present a night of fun for the Soddy-Daisy Community. On Saturday, Oct. 30 they will host a trunk or treat event at Veterans Park, 9000 Dayton Park in Soddy-Daisy, followed by a featured spooky movie.
This free event will have local businesses, churches and non-profit organizations setting up a decorated vehicle candy stop. At each trunk, children of all ages will find treats and maybe some spooky surprises.
“With events being cancelled again this time of year, we wanted to create a safe and sanitary environment where the entire community feels welcomed,” said the Library’s Event Coordinator Kelly Flemings.
“Vehicles will be spaced apart and participants will be socially distanced. Hand sanitation stations will be located throughout the event and facial masks are always recommended to help protect those who are unable to be vaccinated.”
All participants are encouraged to decorate and dress up. Organizations will be competing for one of three prizes: Most Creative DIY, Most Inventive Design and the Peoples Choice award. If your organization wants to participate, visit www.kelcurtfoundation.org
and fill out the application.
The trunk or treat portion will start at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Afterwards, guests are invited to grab a free bag of popcorn and get ready for the movie starting at 8:30 p.m. The featured film is a story of three 17th century witches, hanged for their murderous crimes. In modern-day Salem, an unsuspecting boy lights the candle which was foretold to bring the witch sisters back to life.
“I have some great memories, growing up, participating in community events just like this,” said State Farm Agent David Casteel.“ To be able to sponsor and recreate those incredible memories for the children today is simply an honor and a joy.”
The City of Soddy-Daisy’s Fire Department will have small bonfire pits set up around the area in case it gets a little chilly. Temperatures are expected in the 60’s, so warm blankets and chairs are recommended. Ms. Flemings said, “There has never been a city-wide event like this before, and we hope we can create a new annual tradition that the entire community looks forward to.”
