Trick or treating is back on in the Borderland! After a year of uncertainty, thanks to El Paso reaching herd immunity, Halloween festivities can resume across the Sun City as they have before. If your child is excited for the trick or treating part but is still missing a costume, the El Paso Parks and Recreation department can help you with that.

On Saturday, October 23rd, the El Paso Parks and Recreation department will be hosting a fee costume giveaway at Pavo Real Recreation Center at 9301 Alameda Ave and at Armijo Park at 710 E. 7th Ave. Starting at 10 A.M., your child could have a new costume to debut on Halloween all thanks to donations from both Districts 6 and 8, Technimark, Marathon Petroleum and the Aguilar Family Foundation.

After your child receives a costume, debut that new costume out at our 36th annual Halloween Parade!
