On Belvoir, Halloween turned out to be a flexible, days-long celebration this year, due to threatening weather Halloween Night.
Wednesday evening, displaced families on post crafted a large Trunk-or-Treat in one of Belvoir Hospital’s parking garages, with more than 40 decorated trunks for the kids to stop by, while The Villages at Belvoir provided hot dogs to the attending families.
The Religious Support Office hosted its Fall Fest in the Religious Education Center. Busy families could start by enjoying food, then proceed down the hall for Bible Bingo, crafts and Hula Hoop practice.
There was a carving station for plastic pumpkins, which liberated parents and children from scooping out the gooey gourd guts. Popcorn and cotton candy were on hand for snacking before reaching the face-painting line. On the way out, everyone could pick up a pre-filled bag of candy.
Friday night, was the designated rain date for neighborhood trick-or-treating, as costumed kids and dogs wandered The Villages in search of sweet satisfaction.
