Mark your calendar for three free (not-too-spooky) family events, and take note of some tips for safer trick-or-treating on Halloween night!

Enchanted Forest

Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019, 5:30–8:30 p.m.
Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park, 87th Street Parkway and Lackman Road

For one night only, Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park is transformed into The Enchanted Forest, where there is something to delight even the smallest of Halloween revelers. You can enjoy performances by puppets, musicians and singers along the trail around Rose’s Pond and fun photos in the photo booth. Stroll the seasonal displays, visit friendly characters and enjoy performances at your leisure. The Enchanted Forest is primarily an entertainment event – not a trick-or-treating event. However, there will be a limited supply of candy in the sponsor area, thanks to their generosity.

Truck or Treat

Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, 8–11 a.m.
Lenexa Municipal Services Service Center, 7700 Cottonwood St.

Your favorite combined touch-a-truck and trunk-or-treat event is back by popular demand! Kids will have a blast watching pumpkins get smashed by an asphalt roller or dropped from great heights, painting snow plows and checking out our monstrous equipment up close while collecting treats. The whole family can learn from entertaining demonstrations showing the many ways our Municipal Services team keeps our streets, traffic signals, vehicles, stormwater network and facilities in good shape. 

No Trick, Our Treat: Not Your Mummy’s Halloween House Party III

Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019
4–6 p.m. at Lenexa Rec Center, 17201 W. 87th St. Pkwy.,
5–9 p.m. at Lenexa Public Market, 8750 Penrose Ln.


Treat yourself to a free family-friendly spooky good time on the Lenexa civic campus! First, stop by the Lenexa Rec Center for Trick or Treat Hide n’ Seek, a candy-finding scavenger hunt, from 4 to 6 p.m. Party at the Public Market from 5 to 9 p.m. with face painting, airbrush tattoos, games, music and one impressive costume contest.

Halloween night: Oct. 31

Lenexa doesn’t have set hours for trick-or-treating in Lenexa — so feel free to collect candy on Halloween when it’s convenient for you and your family! While there aren’t set regulations for celebrating the holiday, it’s always a good idea to:
  • Only cross the street at corners, and use traffic signals and crosswalks when available.
  • Always walk on sidewalks and paths, when you can. If there aren’t sidewalks available, walk facing traffic, as far to the left as possible.
  • Make sure children have appropriate supervision when trick-or-treating. Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without supervision.
  • Decorate costumes with reflective materials or stickers, and have children carry glow sticks or flashlights so they can be seen more easily.
