Halloween at the Hatchery Coming Up October 25
Tricks and treats at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center
ATHENS—The Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center will host the annual Halloween at the Hatchery the evening of Thursday, October 25.
Local businesses and organizations will hand out free candy, and the center will be decorated throughout with a Halloween theme.
The event runs from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and is expected to attract about 3,000 people. No one will be admitted before 6:00 p.m., and no pets are allowed. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Admission is $1 per person; proceeds will benefit the Rainbow Room of Henderson County, Henderson County Humane Society and the East Texas Crisis Center.
Halloween at the Hatchery is TFFC’s way of giving East Texas families a safe place to go trick-or-treating while raising money for local causes. The Anglers Pavilion will be the site of a fright-free area featuring prize and game booths for small children. Parents wishing to visit this area should park in the overflow parking lot on Peninsula Point Road and enter through Gate C.
Decorations for the event are made possible by sponsor donations, and local businesses and organizations provide candy and hand it out to visitors. Sponsors at press time included: First State Bank, Prosperity Bank, Texas Farm Bureau, Wulf Outdoor Sports, Athens Dental Works, Texas Trust Credit Union, Athens Marina RV Park, Citizens National Bank, Citizens State Bank, Island Tans, Bancorp South Insurance, Sonic of Athens, KCKL, Red Hat Rentals, East Texas Radiological Consultants, Aaron’s Sales and Lease, Mark Roberts DDS, Byron Briggs DDS, Athens EDC, Beyond the Garden Gate and First State Bank of Brownsboro.
The Athens 4H club will assist with decorating. There is still time for sponsors wishing to reserve a table to give out candy or organizations wishing to help decorate for the event to contact Jim Booker at (903) 670-2266.
