Freaky Friday Fright Nite offers safe Halloween fun and benefits Ronald McDonald House

The 23rd annual Freaky Friday Fright Nite is 5-7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at Mayor Bob Leonard Park. Children ages 12 and under are invited to "trick or treat" on the walk trail while local businesses, community groups and Town of Farragut volunteers hand out treats and provide games with prizes and cookie decorating.

This is a free event, but participants are asked to bring items to benefit the local Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children who are being served by area hospitals.

Collection stations will be located next to the cookie decorating area off the main parking lot on Watt Road and next to the entrance from the Harrison Lane parking lot. Suggested donations include paper towels, Lysol spray, individually wrapped snack items, to-go boxes, heavy-duty paper plates, heavy-duty plastic cutlery, gift cards for gas stations, discount stores, grocery stores and home improvement stores, postage stamps, copy paper, K-cups, coffee creamer, detergent, cans of air freshener, garbage bags (especially tall kitchen size), hand soap with a pump and hand sanitizer. Cash donations will also be accepted. For a complete list of donations, visit the Town of Farragut’s Facebook event page for Freaky Friday. Learn more about the Ronald McDonald House of Knoxville at
