Safe Night for Kids Returns in a Big Way


For the first time since the pandemic, Safe Night For Kids was back at Lake Waccamaw, Monday.

Thousands of trick or treaters and their families showed up for games, candy and other activities. The free event is organized by Columbus County Parks and Recreation, the town of Lake Waccamaw and the Boys and Girls Home. Multiple booths were set up by churches, civic clubs and other volunteers.

A steady stream of ghouls, princesses, superheroes and tiny first responders rolled through the gates at the Blacks Tire Event Center. For those whose costume needed a finishing touch, a face paint artist from Lake Waccamaw Presbyterian Church was standing by.

A new addition to Safe Night was the food truck court, which quickly became popular with visitors looking for something more substantial than popcorn and candy.

Fire departments and the Sheriff's Office had vehicles for the kids to explore, and the Fire Marshal's office brought the "Smoke House" to let youngsters have some fun while they learned about fire safety.
