The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is also a part of the event reinforcing their commitment to growing community partnerships. 

“Community building is extremely important for us,” said Officer Kristi Allen of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department. “The role we play in schools and being able to show up for our young people and show them what community looks like is very important. So, we are happy to be a part of this event, and we look forward to supporting community fellowship and seeing the kids and families have a great time.”


During the event, families will have an opportunity to celebrate the fall and get some goodies.


Chompz food truck will be there. There will also be a bounce house, a DJ, face painting, and cotton candy. Everyone is encouraged to wear their best costume. Covering Kids and Families will also be on site to help register those who may need health coverage.
