Jeepers, Creekers!



Jeepers Creekers Inc. and the Swartz Creek Area Firefighters Inc. teamed up to present the 3rd annual Jeepers Creekers trunk-or-treat and movie Saturday, Oct. 10, in downtown Swartz Creek. Event organizers estimate around 1,000 kids strolled through the tunnel of trunks collecting candy and enjoying the warm weather and creative Halloween and harvest themed decorations. Prize winners for best decorations were Freedom Dumpsters and Ernie Eckerdt. Next up for the 2020 Jeepers Creekers festivities is the 2nd annual costumed Pub Crawl set for Saturday, Oct. 24. Tickets for the pub crawl cost $20 and are available on under 2nd annual Jeepers Creekers Costume Bar Crawl. Registered participants will receive food and drink specials. The fun begins at 6 p.m. at Hank & Don’s Bar and includes stops at the American Legion, Barley & Vine, the VFW/AmVets hall and Jan’s Bar before wrapping up back at Hank & Don’s. Best costumes will receive prize baskets. For more information, visit the Jeepers Creekers Facebook page. Photos by Lania Rocha
