Trick or Treating

Trick or Treating will be held on October 31. The City of Clinton is not responsible for rescheduling holiday observances. It is the discretion of a neighborhood and/or organization whether they will offer Trick or Treating on another day. 

The streets of Clinton's Olde Towne will once again be filled with ghouls, ghosts and goblins when the Clinton Parks and Recreation Department hosts its' annual "Haunting of Olde Towne."

The Haunting of Olde Towne will be happening at Lion's Club park for all of the creepy, crawly but fun festivities.   The Haunting of Old Towne will be held on Thursday, Oct 27 from 6:00 -8:00 pm. 

Returning to the event are the usual crowd favorites such as cake walks, costume contests for ages 0-16, and carnival style games. In addition, bounce houses and other interactive games will be available for H.O.O.T. attendees. 

As always, there will be lots of candy and toys for everyone participating in the games, and age-appropriate prizes will be given to contest winners.



The annual Clinton community Eggstra Special Event, set for Sunday, April 2, from 2:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M. at Traceway Park. Open to children ages 9 and younger, the event will have the traditional lineup of egg hunts and carnival games.

Eggstra Special has been one of Clinton’s premiere events for years and is a continued partnership between the Junior Auxiliary of Clinton and the City's Parks and Recreation Department. Held at Traceway Park, it provides an opportunity for the entire community to come together for a family-friendly egg hunt, with special activities and a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

“Year after year the Eggstra Special event continues to grow and provide an opportunity for children to enjoy one of the much anticipated rites of childhood, the Easter egg hunt. Eggstra Special provides the opportunity for families of all ages in the community to enjoy playing outdoors, as well as hunting for eggs,” said Adam Wade, Director of Clinton Parks and Recreation Department.   

Egg hunts will begin at 2:30 p.m., with zero to 2-year-olds hunting first at 2:30 p.m. Ages 3 and 4 will hunt at 2:50 p.m., ages 5 and 6 at 3:10 p.m., and the 7- through 9-year-olds will wrap up the hunt at 3:30 p.m. Event organizers strongly request that only parents of 0-2-year-olds and children with special needs enter the hunting area to assist their child.  There will also be a scavenger hunt for ages 10-12 beginning at 3:50pm.

If your child needs special accommodations, please contact Clinton Parks and Recreation at 601-924-6082. 

In addition to the egg and scavenger hunts, children can enjoy prizes, carnival games, space jumps and refreshments.
