Safe Night Out
Date: Friday, October 28th
Location: Nancy Lane Park
The longest-running annual event in Atoka, Safe Night Out offers a safe, family-friendly Halloween event for the community. First held in 1997, the event continues to evolve and grow as new and exciting offerings are added every year. Safe Night Out is held at Nancy Lane Park every Halloween beginning at 6:00 pm. The event is free of charge; however, the donation of a canned or non-perishable food item is requested for each guest. Those donations are provided to a local charity - raising hundreds of donated items over the years - for distribution during the holiday season.
The event will again be a drive-through trail. The trail has been such a huge hit we have decided to continue with the idea. We will add to the trail each year. Cars will drive through Nancy Lane Park and see lots of Halloween Decor. At the end of the trail every child will receive a goodie bag filled with candy, prizes, etc.
The event provides a great way for our littlest Atokans to collect great candy and have fun in a safe environment. There's no better way to enjoy a crisp October evening than at Nancy Lane Park for Safe Night Out.
Date: November 11th
Location: Adkison Park
The Town of Atoka hosts their annual Veteran's Day Ceremony at Adkison Park each year on Veteran's Day, November 11th at 8am. A special Medal of Honor Flag is raised along with a twenty-one-gun salute.
Born as an idea submitted to the Town through Facebook, the Town of Atoka hosted our first Santa's Ride in December of 2012. The event features the Jolly Elf riding atop an Atoka fire truck, bringing extra Christmas cheer to every street and neighborhood visited. Before the ride Saturday, Santa will host a Meet and Greet back at the fire station -complete with candy canes, cookies, and hot cocoa and a chance to get those last-minute gift requests directly to the Big Guy.
Live Santa Tracking: This feature is brought to you by Tipton County GIS. In order to watch Santa move around Town and for you to be ready for his appearance when he makes his way passed your house, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REFRESH YOUR BROWSER FREQUENTLY ON YOUR COMPUTER. If you are tracking him on your phone, please zoom in and out on the map to refresh his location.
This year, Santa's Ride will again cover two nights - visiting more subdivisions and delivering more Christmas cheer than ever before. We have added more areas and streets so please check the maps.
