Alpine Township Hosts Community Fall Halloween Festival

When does the Township celebrate Halloween?  It is traditionally celebrated on October 31, and the Township is not aware of any communities within the Township that plan to celebrate it any other day.  Out of respect, please don't disturb any homes that have their porch lights turned off.

Alpine Township will host a Fall Halloween Festival on Halloween Day, Sunday, October 31, 2010 from 1:00 P.M. until 4:00 P.M. at the Alpine Township Sports Complex, 1850 Alpine Church Road, on the corner of Alpine Church Road and Baumhoff Ave.

The Board of Trustees decided to do this to promote community spirit, to offer members in the community an opportunity to get together, enjoy free hotdogs, cider and donuts, (and candy), to familiarize the community with the Alpine Township Sports Complex, to solicit interest in softball or soccer programs for 2011, to promote Public Safety and display our brand new Fire Pumper Truck, to meet township officials, and to have an enjoyable afternoon.

Activities are geared towards children thirteen and under, and include apple bobbing, bag toss game, and face painting.

In addition to members of the Alpine Township Board of Trustees, there will be representatives from the Alpine Township Fire Department, the Kent County Sheriff’s Department and the American Red Cross. Our newest fire truck is slated for delivery just days before this event.

Products are donated by generous Alpine Township farmers and businesses, and by members of the Alpine Township Board of Trustees. For questions, please contact Alpine Township Supervisor Alex Arends at 616-784-1262.

WHEN: Sunday, October 31, 1:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.
