ELKHART — It looks like trick-or-treating at Elkhart's Island Park could become a new tradition after a great turnout Saturday.

The city worked with Cummins Onan and conducted a trick or treat event at Island Park on Saturday and were surprised with the turnout.

Officials had expected about 500 trick-or-treaters but ended up serving about 1,500, according to Karin Frey, parks superintendent.

“We were overwhelmed with the numbers,” Frey said.

Frey said the parks department plans to co-sponsor the event again with Cummins Onan.

“We were extremely pleased with the companies who were part of this first annual project and, hopefully, many more companies will join this effort,” she said.
