Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department is celebrating its 17th Annual Goblin Gathering in conjunction with National Night Out at G.T. Bray Park. National Night Out is a program to strengthen neighborhood spirit and create police-community partnerships to make our community a safe place to live.

Bring the family out and join in the costume contest, face painting, hayrides, and bounce houses.

A $5 wristband is sold for children to participate in activities. Parental participation and trick-or-treating is free. Food vendors will have food for purchase and several local businesses will be participating by passing out “treats & sweets” to participants, providing a safe alternative for children to trick-or-treat.
