Trick-or-Treat With Johnny TinCap

Halloween is quickly approaching and Johnny TinCap is looking to make plans. Do you know anyone who’d like to go trick-or-treating with him?

If so, members of the Apple Corps Kids Club are invited to enter the TinCaps Halloween Essay Contest. All you need to do is explain “Why I want to trick-or-treat with Johnny TinCap…” in 100 words or less.

Not an Apple Corps Kids Club member yet? Then sign up here. It’s free to join and open for all kids 12 and under.

Essays are due by Monday, Oct. 26 at 5:00 p.m. and can be emailed to johnny, dropped off at Parkview Field, or sent to the following address:

Attn: Johnny TinCap, Fort Wayne TinCaps, 1301 Ewing St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802.

Entries will be judged by Johnny and his friends on the TinCaps’ staff.

Johnny will go trick-or-treating with the winner in his or her neighborhood for an hour on Halloween (Saturday, Oct. 31). The winner also will receive a special TinCaps Prize Pack.

Take a look at this video of Johnny trick-or-treating with last year’s winner, Lydia.

In case you want to see Johnny before Halloween, come out to Parkview Field this Saturday, Oct. 17 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. for Downtown Fort Wayne’s Fright Night Scavenger Hunt. Ghosts and pumpkins will be hidden all around the park for you to find. Whoever indentifies the correct number of ghosts and pumpkins also will win a special TinCaps Prize Pack.

Happy Halloween from Johnny and the TinCaps!
