The Tiger King was a popular costume to trick or treat in this Halloween season but was not the only cool cat celebrating the holiday. Many participated in festivities throughout Bladen County.

Although the traditional trick or treating open to the public was canceled at White Lake due to COVID-19, some adapted. Many were still able to have a fun and festive Halloween. Camp Clearwater Family Campground held decorating contests, a Harvest Party, and other exciting events. Clearwater Mini Golf offered free putt-putt to the public as a treat as well.

Moving across the county, Bladenboro and Clarkton residents offered candy for trick or treating characters. Pirates, ghosts, princesses, and other characters great and small were seen raking in the candy.

Dublin First Baptist Church held a Harvest Hunt Magic Tricks and Treats event with 70 families in attendance. Daryl Strickland gave an inspiring message about faith as he held the crowds’ attention. Before the children left, some won prizes, and all grabbed bags with candy and toys inside.

Last not but not least, Foundation Church held a drive-through Tent or Treat event. Each year the church located in Elizabethtown holds a Tent or Treat event; however, this year, for safety, they adjusted the event. The outreach ministry still offered a way to celebrate the season and many participated in the event.
