Around Stark County, communities are preparing for a spook-tacular Halloween weekend with various events taking place between Oct. 29-31.


The Belfield Parks and Recreation Department will hold a “Spooky Community Trunk R’ Treat” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31 on Main Street in Belfield. Anyone who would like to decorate their trunk and hand out candy is encouraged to show up at 12:30 p.m.

The Belfield Volunteer Fire Department is hosting a haunted house called the "Twisted Shop of Horrors." Admission is $15. Anyone under the age of 18 will be required to have a parent’s signature to enter. The haunted house will be open from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Oct. 29-31.

“Do you dare enter to face the angry spirits of the early frontier, forever trapped within these walls? The real question is will they let you leave once inside?” the fire department asked in a Facebook event post.


Taylor and South Heart

The Taylor Park Board is throwing a Halloween party at the Taylor Opera House from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30. In a Facebook post, the board said the event will include “taco in a bag, treats, best costume contest and some spooky fun!”

In South Heart, the I Don’t Know Bar will host an event called “Baggar Treats, Candy for the kids” at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31. Motorcyclists are encouraged to bring their bikes and candy. Bikers will then hand out candy from their saddlebags. All are welcome to attend.


The KPTA will host the Killdeer Halloween Carnival this Sunday, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., at the High Plains Community Center. Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to Killdeer Girl Scouts Food Pantry. For each item donated, attendees can enter a drawing for one of three $100 gift cards.

New England

St. Mary’s Catholic Church in New England will not be having its usual “Treat Street” event this year as Halloween is on a Sunday, but the church said it will be back next year.
