Oct. 31: Firehouse haunts, trunk or treat in South Londonderry

pumpkinThe community is invited to attend the sixth Annual Haunted Firehouse starting at 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 31 at South Londonderry Fire Station, 60 Main St. The event is free and sponsored by the South Londonderry Fire Department.

The firehouse will be open with free food and drinks, tours of the fire station, and a campfire. Kids of all ages can check out the haunted portion of the firehouse.

The Haunted Firehouse runs in conjunction with Trunk-or-Treating sponsored by the First Baptist Church of South Londonderry from 5 to 7 p.m. on the green lawn between the fire station and the bridge.

Kids can trick-or-treat, walking from vehicle to vehicle to gather candy. People are invited to park their cars next to the firehouse and set up at 4:45 p.m., open their trunks, and hand out treats to children, starting at 5 p.m. Participants are encouraged to dress up and decorate their trunks or around the car if they feel like doing so.

Main Street will be closed during the event, but people can park either at the library and Town Office building or at First Baptist Church’s parking lot. For questions, contact Chris Blackey at 802-856-7266.
