GRAVETTE -- The big bays at the Gravette fire station were bustling with activity Thursday evening. Gravette fire and police department personnel hosted their annual trick or treat event for area youngsters. Fire trucks and the ambulance were moved and put on display outside, and space inside was filled with giant inflatables and a maze the children could crawl through.
Many trick or treaters showed up to select from the treasure trove of candy that was offered, and most were in costume as organizers had suggested. They romped around the fire station enjoying the games provided, including Jenga, Connect 4 and a bean bag toss.
Free hot dogs, chips and drinks were provided for both kids and adults, thanks to donations from Harps, CV's Family Foods, Dollar General, Thairapy Salon, Gravette Station, Lions Stop, Sam's Club, Tyson Foods, Pepsi and Milo's Tea Company.
With temperatures in the 30s and heavy traffic on some city streets, both young and old agreed the event was a much warmer and safer alternative than trick-or-treating from door to door.
