RCA Community Park

The paved trail through the woods come to life with your child's favorite movie, storybook, and fairy tale characters! Stop at stations to trick-or-treat and hear a story. Let your little ones get creative building with the Rigamajig, a giant wooden playset. We'll also have taste testing of hocus-pocus healthy snacks and active, jumping jack-o'-lantern fun!

Due to the popularity of the Trick or Treat Trail, there may be a wait to enter the trail. We appreciate your patience.

Festival of Ghost Stories

Bryan Park

An ink-black night with leering jack-o'-lanterns and crisp cider set the stage for an evening of live storytelling beneath the stars. A Halloween-time tradition for more than 33 years, the Festival of Ghost Stories features haunting tales of ghosts and horror that will tingle the spine. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and dress warmly to avoid the chill as seasoned storytellers spin their tales in the dark.

A community event presented by Bloomington Parks and Recreation and sponsored by the Monroe County Public Library and the Bloomington Storytellers Guild. Rain location: Monroe County Public Library
