ROCK ISLAND, Illinois – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi River Project is hosting its annual Trick-or-Treat in the Park at the Thomson Causeway Recreation Area in Thomson, Illinois. The event will be held on Saturday, October 15 from 3 - 5 p.m. Thomson Causeway is located on the west side of Thomson, Illinois, on Lewis Avenue off Main Street.
During Trick-or-Treat in the Park, ghouls and goblins take over the campground and travel from campsite to campsite collecting candy. Campers decorate their campsites and compete for the best decorated site in the campground. There is no charge to attend the event and both campers and non-campers are invited to participate.
Interested participants should be sure to be in the park prior to 2:30 p.m. as the campground will be closed to traffic after this time for the safety of all who are involved in the event. The boat ramp will also be closed from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
A few guidelines visitors are asked to follow during the Trick-or Treat event:
Children age 12 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.
Trick-or-Treaters should only visit sites displaying trick-or-treat signs.
To ensure visitor safety, traffic will be restricted throughout the camping loops during the event and the boat ramp will be closed from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
