SAN ANGELO—On Halloween night, also known as Hallowmas, or All Saints Day, ghouls and ghosts, roamed the haunted streets of San Angelo going door to door for trick-or-treats. Other children also dressed up as either vampires, werewolves, Sponge Bob, Beauty and the Beast or Batman, etc. braved the cold and twilight evening as thousands of trick-or-treaters attended the Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office third annual Trunk or Treat Halloween Party which was held at the Sheriff’s Office, 222 W. Harris Street.

TGC officers volunteered their evening to support this, “Fright Night” community event, which began in 2014. The officers passed out candy and free food at TGC’s Trunk-or-Treat Halloween costume party which has averaged 3,000 families for this ever-growing popular festive event. Many of the TGC’s officers went all out this year to decorate their vehicles to provide a fun and safe atmosphere for all the cuties dressed up in their favorite Halloween character costumes, ready for all the sweets they could carry home with them.

Besides a night of enjoying the howling eve festivities, the County’s aim was to ensure safety among trick or treaters as well as reach out to the community for food and fun. The Trunk or Treat also featured a haunted house which gave Halloweeners some scaredy-cat moments to remember their “trunk-or-treat” night.
