STEPHENVILLE, Texas —Tarleton State University’s W.K. Gordon Center for the Industrial History of Texas in Thurber is hosting its Fourth Annual Halloween trunk or treat at 2 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 31.

Admission is free, costumes are encouraged, and the event is suitable for all ages.

Staff and guests over 10 years of age are asked to wear face coverings or shields and physical distancing protocols dictate a limited number of guests in the building at a time. Candy will be prepacked into individual zip-lock bags to reduce contact between guests.

Weather permitting, candy distribution will be on the museum parking lot with alternative parking available to ensure the safety of all participants.
