Second Annual "Happyween" Event Scheduled


 The City of Gainesville, Alachua County Community Support Services' Office of Community Stabilization and Depot Park have partnered together for the 2nd Annual Family Information/Children "Happyween" Fun Day. This event is at Depot Park (200 Southeast Depot Ave.)  Saturday, Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Happyween connects families with local agencies, organizations, law enforcement, emergency management services, city and county fire rescue services, health, waste management, housing and employment services. Agencies will assist citizens with questions and give referrals as needed.

Children's activities include children car seat/bicycle safety demonstrations, face painting, performances and raffles. This event is a safe place for our children to trick or treat with their parents close by.

"There are numerous services in our community that citizens are not aware of," said Alachua County Community Stabilization Program Manager Marie Small. "Since there is no one-stop location for information, it is very important that we take services and information to our communities."
