South Bend Cubs hosting Trick or Treat on October 28
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Cubs have renewed their partnership with the South Bend Police Department to host Stu and Swoop's Cops and Goblins trick or treat event on October 28.
The event will be from 5-7 p.m. at Four Winds Field.
Last year more than 6,000 children and parents attended the inaugural event.
Stu and Swoop’s Cops and Goblins is a safe trick or treat event with the South Bend Police and Fire Department and other city officials.
South Bend Cubs mascots Stu and Swoop will be present to meet and take pictures with the kids.
“Community policing is a priority for the South Bend Police Department and this annual trick or treat event is the one officers look forward to the most,” South Bend Police Chief Scott Ruszkowski said. “This fun and safe event for families is yet another opportunity for the community and officers to come together and continue to build positive relationships that benefit the city as a whole.”
“We were hoping for a good turn out last year but did not expect our first year hosting this wonderful event to be so successful,” South Bend Cubs Director of Media and Promotions Chris Hagstrom-Jones said. “Given the success of last year, we plan to use more of the ballpark to space out candy tables and try to get more kids through the lines.”
Kids arriving in their Halloween costumes will have the chance to enter a costume contest at the park. Prizes will be awarded to those who are wearing the most fun and creative costumes. Make sure to arrive early, as a crowd exceeding last year’s 6,000 is expected this year.
