Trick-or-Treat at Tanger
Ryan Summerlin October 25, 2013
The Park City Tanger Outlet Center will be hosting its annual Trick-or-Treat with Tangeroo event on Saturday, Oct. 26, until 6 p.m. including trick-or-treating, free face painting and a costume contest where children can compete for prizes from participating stores.
Candice Wilson, general manager of the Tanger Outlet Center, said the event is one that is held at every Tanger Outlet Center nationwide, and each child in attendance will receive a bag of goodies that are being pre-stuffed this week in preparation for Saturday.
"We collected a large amount of coupons from participating stores that will be in the bags we hand out," Wilson said.
The list of stores may grow by Saturday, she said, and they will all be handing out treats to children who stop by.
This will be Wilson’s fourth Halloween at the outlet center, and she said that continues to be a well-lit and monitored event where parents can take their children to trick-or-treat without worries.
"It is a really popular event every year, because it is a safe environment where they can trick-or-treat instead of neighborhoods," Wilson said. "It’s been well received here, and it’s a fun event for the whole family."
She said that the stores that participate every year love doing it and are excited to make the local children’s Halloween safe and memorable again this year.
The costume contest will be held at the Tanger Tent on the plaza by Carter’s at 2:30 p.m., and the Park City Fire Department will be in attendance as judges. Children ages 3-12 are eligible to enter.
From 3 p.m. until 6 p.m., trick-or-treaters can walk around to stores that will be handing out candies and goodies starting at the Tanger Tent where they will pick up their pre-stuffed goodie bags filled with glow sticks and "coupons for the kids as well as mom and dad."
