Halloween events set for Oct. 29 at JBSA-Randolph

Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph Public Affairs

Halloween will come early this year to the Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph community.

            Because Joint Base San Antonio will present the 2015 Air Show and Open House Oct. 31-Nov. 1 at JBSA-Randolph, Halloween events are planned for Thursday.

            The 902nd Security Forces Squadron’s Pumpkin Patrol from 5-8 p.m. Thursday will use mobile and foot patrols to focus on the safety of trick-or-treaters who will visit the location’s housing areas.

            “Our goal is to ensure that trick-or-treaters are safe and make drivers aware that trick-or-treaters will be out and about,” Tech. Sgt. Mark Fox, 902nd SFS NCO in charge of police services, said.

            Anyone wanting to volunteer for the Pumpkin Patrol can contact Tech Sgt. Fox at 652-1645 before Oct. 27.

            JBSA-Randolph Youth Programs’ Fall Hi-Jinx, scheduled from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday at building 585, will give families another Halloween option with a free carnival that includes a costume contest, games, prizes and treats.

            “Fall Hi-Jinx was designed with the family in mind,” Andrea Black, 502nd Force Support Squadron youth programs coordinator, said. “It was developed in the wake of 9/11. Air Force Youth Programs wanted to ensure military families and their children had a safe and friendly alternative to trick or treating.”
