2023 Halloween Candy Drop

October 21st, 2023

Families will gather at Union Park to celebrate Halloween for the second annual Candy Drop. With assistance from the Des Moines Fire Department, we will drop hundreds of pounds of candy from the sky for little ones to collect and enjoy! 

Volunteers will assist in keeping visitors safe and clear from the drop zone and handing out candy. Costumes are encouraged but not required. 

All volunteers will need to pass a background check in order to help with this event.
