Our Story

For year's our community has always joined together to offer a fun evening on Oct. 31st for kids and families to "trunk-or-treat" in the school parking lot. It has been something our community has looked forward to year after year.


A couple years ago, as Turpin was recovering from the shut-down of Covid, the members of the community that normally hosted the event decided they didn't want to do the event anymore. It was a crazy time for all of us, so we said no worries!  After some back and forth, our kids ministry team decided they wanted to begin hosting a glow-in-the-dark, carnival style, candy-filled event with a #morethemerrier attitude!  Our fearless leaders, Jenn Player + Jennie Lynch, (along with our AMAZING volunteer team!) have turned what was once trunk-or-treat turned into what we know today as Candyland.

Candyland is a night where an amazing team made up of over of over 26+ volunteers host 15 candy booths, 5 food + games booths, a bounce house, and an eating area themed after Candy Dots! Every single booth will GLOW once the sun goes down, so stick around for some glow-in-the-dark fun!


How it works: Start at the ticket booth to grab your candy bags and booth tickets. 20 stops along the game board for kids to collect candy + prizes.... through the gumdrop path and the lollipop forest, of course!  Then end the game at the hotdog stand + candy dots eating area for a night for a quick bite with the family.  There will be a bounce house for younger kiddos, that they can play in after making all their candy stops, and some yard games for adults if anyone wants to try their luck at cornhole. 

Come in costume (or not)! Everyone is welcome, and sometimes even the dogs come dressed up (see the gallery below)!
