5th Annual Obetz Halloween Party

Join us at Fortress Obetz for some SPOOKY fun on October 26th, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. This annual, family-friendly, FREE event is a great way to have fun with the community. We are looking for event volunteers! Please email Kerri Duffy at kduffy@obetz.oh.us to let us know if you’d like to volunteer.

What is Trunk or Treat? Participants decorate the trunk of their vehicle in a theme and pass out candy. Trunk or Treat provides a safe alternative for children to collect candy while under the supervision of their parents. Click HERE for trunk decorating ideas.

Trunk or Treat is located in the Fortress parking lot. We ask that you arrive between 5:00 and 5:45 PM to allow us time to line-up all participants. This also provides you with ample time to decorate your trunk.

Trunk or Treat begins at 6:00 PM and lasts as long as the candy does.
