Freaky Friday Fright Nite offers safe Halloween fun and benefits Ronald McDonald House

The 25th annual Freaky Friday Fright Nite takes place from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 29, at Mayor Bob Leonard Park. Children ages 12 and under are invited to "trick or treat" on the walking trail while local businesses, community groups and Town of Farragut volunteers hand out treats and provide games with prizes and cookie decorating. 

 This is a free event, but participants are asked to bring items to benefit the local Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children who are being served by area hospitals.

 Collection stations will be located next to the cookie decorating area off the main parking lot on Watt Road and next to the entrance from the Harrison Lane parking lot. Suggested donations include individually wrapped snacks (crackers, nuts, granola bars, chips), small pudding/applesauce/jello cups, air freshener sprays, Lysol or any disinfectant sprays, 8.5x11 copy paper, postage stamps, packing tape, Sharpie markers, LED light bulbs, LED 25 watt small-base candelabra bulbs, individual packets of coffee creamer and sugar, disposable coffee cups, dishwasher detergent, pump-style hand soap, and gift cards (Walmart, Target, Food City, Kroger, Lowe's, Home Depot, ACE Hardware, gas stations, phone cards). Cash donations are always gratefully accepted - no gift is too small to make a big difference! Learn more about the Ronald McDonald House of Knoxville at knoxrmhc.org.

 For the first time, Kona Ice and the Hot Dog Hut will be on location with snacks for purchase. They will accept cash and all major credit cards, but not Apple Pay.

 For more information about Freaky Friday, contact Brittany Spencer at bspencer@townoffarragut.org or 218-3378. The event will be held rain or shine; however, in the case of severe inclement weather, check Farragut Parks & Rec on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for the status of the event.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
