KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - It is Halloween weekend and there is so much happening around East Tennessee.

Starting as early as Thursday, you can get a head start on trick-or-treating Thursday at UT’s Circle Park. UT is hosting a trunk-or-treat from 6 to 8 p.m. There will be cars full of candy, fall games, Petro’s Chili, fall food and sweets, and festive pumpkin painting.

Also from 6 to 8 p.m., the City of Oak Ridge is hosting a Monster Mash Bash. The event will feature a “walk in the park” where kids will get treats throughout the trail and they can also participate in a stamped scavenger hunt. The event is free, but you are encouraged to register online to ensure there are enough sweet treats to go around.

Friday, October 29th:

The 25th annual Freaky Friday Fright Nite takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. at Mayor Bob Leonard Park in Farragut. Kids are invited to trick-or-treat on the walking trail.
