Jackson, TN, October 24, 2016– The City of Jackson’s Season of Unity campaign (www.seasonofunity.com) continues
on Saturday, October 29 th , as Mayor Gist and Mayor Harris host the ninth annual Trunk or Treat at The Ballpark at
Jackson (4 Fun Place) beginning at 3:00 PM. Bring your family to enjoy an evening filled with fun! Come see firetrucks,
police cars, ambulances, construction equipment, monster trucks, tractors, and feel the powerful windstorm as
helicopters land right before your eyes! Batman will even be there to join in the fun!
Nearly eighty area businesses will be present in order to deliver candy to the nearly twenty-thousand who have
traditionally made the Jackson-Madison County Trunk or Treat an annual tradition. There will be plenty of
entertainment for the grown-ups inside the stadium – from football games on the big screen to live entertainment
and concessions. The night will end as we partner with Angles for Blue to recognize and honor all our first
responders. Then we will light the stadium blue as we partner with BlueStrong to kick off their "Light the City Blue"
campaign by lighting the stadium blue with a professional fireworks show. You can help us turn the stadium blue by
bringing a blue glow-stick; come join the celebration!
This event exists to bring unity to all facets of our great community – first responders, religious
organizations, schools, government agencies and businesses. There has been such a negative image creating
division promoted as of late. This night is all about showing the younger generation that we CAN all work,
live, eat, learn, love and UNITE together toward a common goal while having a fantastic time! We are
blessed to live in a community where so many are willing to show the future generation what it means to
love your neighbor while working in unity! – Jeff Wall, director and founder, Jackson – Madison County
Trunk or Treat
