Glendo State Park is hosting the fourth-annual "Two Boos at Two Moon" Trick-or-Treat Event on Saturday, October 28, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There is no cost to attend as all fees are waived for this event.
Scheduled yearly on the last Saturday in October, the event offers families a fun, safe, and unique way to trick-or-treat. Trick-or-treaters follow a paved path through the west loop of the Two Moon Campground to pick up candy at several stations and admire the spooky scenes and decorations along the way. Decorations are considered more "spooky" than "scary", so trick-or-treaters of all ages are welcome.
The event is a fantastic way to bring together the local communities of Glendo, Wheatland, Douglas, Glenrock, and even Casper and Cheyenne. About 300 visitors attended the event last year -- which is more than the Town of Glendo itself! All of the candy that is given out is donated by local businesses who become event sponsors in return for advertising throughout the event.
"We have a great time hosting this event each year because it is a unique opportunity for folks to come enjoy the park in a different way while safely celebrating Halloween," says Glendo State Park Superintendent Brian Johnson. "We are fortunate to have a community that really supports the event in every aspect and is excited to come back year after year."
Park Staff strives to improve the event each year, and this year is no different. There will be new decorations, more candy, and maybe even activities to enjoy. Although the event runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., it is recommended that trick-or-treaters arrive by 7:15 p.m. to allow for plenty of time to explore all of the spooky attractions. Candy and other goodies are while supplies last. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
