BATH, Mich. – Bath Township’s annual Truck-or-Treat on Oct. 24 drew in hundreds of children and their families, all decked out in their Halloween best.  Bath Township Parks and Recreation has organized the event for five or six years.

The event was held at Bath Elementary School parking lot this year.  It has previously been held in the shopping center parking lot on the corner of Clark and Webster, but was moved because the school lot offered more room, said the event’s coordinator Becky Goodwin, who has been running the event for the past three years.  The middle school’s lot was used for parking for the event, which left the whole elementary lot for the trick-or-treaters, and made it a much safer environment for the kids, Goodwin said.
