Christiansburg Parks and Recreation, invites you to the Recreation Center on October 29 for its annual Getting Scary on the Huckleberry! Come dressed up in your favorite costume and ready to have fun! The event includes a Truck or Treat 9 a.m.-noon, Kids Fun Run  and the 5K Run/Walk. 
Trucks from Christiansburg Fire, Police, Public Works, Rescue, and others will be stationed at the Recreation Center for kids (and kids at heart!) to look at and touch.  Admission to Truck or Treat is free, and participating organizations will be handing out candy. 
No animals are permitted in the race. Strollers must start at the back. Awards and prize money will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female finishers. Medals will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each age group. Don't forget your costumes because there will be awards given for those, too! There will also be a free, one-mile Kid's Fun Run. And, as an added bonus, Parks and Recreation staff will be cooking up their famous pumpkin pancakes for race participants!
