Halloween Spooktacular in Riverton-trophy awarded for Most Creative Drop Box
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -
The first annual Halloween spook-tacular was last weekend in Riverton. This is the first year the Riverton Chamber of Commerce has gotten local businesses involved in collecting candy for the event. And with 270 pounds collected altogether, Teton Therapy won the trophy, collecting 156 of the 270 pound total.
“We love to have a fun little competition with people, and our ‘Trixter’ became the star of the show. Our wonderful tech Sierra, she’s the one that created him. The rest is history, we had so much fun just talking with patients about it,” stated Kaya Reed of Teton Therapy. Trixter was the name of their candy collection box that people used to donate candy at Teton Therapy.
Eight businesses decorated unique boxes to collect the candy in, and the competition lasted until the Friday before Halloween.
“We saw Fremont Chevy doing their competition, if you bring in a bag, you get so much off, and we’re like, ‘we don’t have anything fun like that, but we were just going to make it fun’ and obviously blow people out of the water, and that’s what we did,” added Reed.
The chamber said it was a successful event, with support from the community, and even with over 270 pounds of candy, they ran out of the sweet packaged treats toward the end.
Executive Director of the Riverton Chamber of Commerce Ashley Strickland stated, “Our community really pulled through, donating all of that candy it was truly amazing. It was a fun healthy competition, you should have seen the businesses, ‘are we ahead? are we doing this, what do we need to do?’ It was really, really wonderful, and that does not include the candy that our trunk or treaters brought by themselves."
“We were so excited, we might have done a little woop woop, it was pretty neat,” stated Reed. The trophy will travel to businesses each year for the most creative drop box.
