The Bluffton Police Department (BPD) is hosting its third annual Safety Spooktacular October 27 at Oscar Frazier Park.
This event evolved from the annual National Night Out. In 2021, the National Night Out was canceled due to weather so BPD combined the objective of National Night, which is to provide a venue for the public to meet first responders, with Halloween fun. The Spooktacular event was embraced by the Bluffton community and a new tradition was born. This event invites all residents of all ages to meet (and possibly dance) with their community’s first responders, trunk-n-treat, enjoy the deejay and meet community groups which contribute to our collective public safety. This free event is an opportunity to learn more about local agencies and non-profit organizations which are all working together as partners in public and personal safety. Each organization will be distributing safety information as well as Halloween candy. Bluffton police officers will also be grilling hotdogs for the public. All attendees, of any age, are encouraged to wear costumes. A costume contest will be held at 6:30 p.m. for all ages. Don’t forget to get a costume for your furry friends because there
