Town looks for ‘Freaky Friday’


The town of Farragut is inviting local non-profit organizations, community groups and businesses to participate in Freaky Friday Fright Nite, one of the largest family events in the Farragut area. A few spots still remain for this year’s event, scheduled for from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 30, 2009, at Mayor Bob Leonard Park off Watt Road.

Groups and businesses can reach the Farragut community by reserving a treat station and distributing candy and/or other “goodies” (company pencils, notepads, key chains, etc.) to area children as they safely trick-or-treat along the walk trail at the park. Each group will be assigned an area along the trail, and participants are encouraged to dress in costume (appropriate for a children’s event).


Town staff is expecting a larger crowd in 2009 since the event is the day before Halloween; therefore, groups should prepare enough treats for approximately 1,600 children. Businesses and organizations are welcome to share a spot; indicate both names on the registration form for event signage. Groups are responsible for their own tables, chairs and decorations and are welcome to bring a small popup tent; however, all tents must be anchored by sandbags or other weights and cannot be secured in the ground.

A Town staff member will be at the park beginning at 9 a.m. to serve as security for any items a group sets up early on the day of the event. In addition, the town of Farragut will provide a sign at each station with the business name(s) and will conduct all games as in past years. 

The deadline for reserving a treat station is Monday, Oct. 12. Entry forms can be accessed at www.townoffarragut.org or at the Farragut Town Hall, 11408 Municipal Center Drive, across from Farragut Branch Post Office. For more information or to receive a form by fax, contact Anne LaGrow at anne.la-grow@townoffarragut.org or 865-966-7057.
