Winter Park-Maitland Observer
Halloween with Police and Fire Rescue, Mayors' Sole Challenge, Movie in the Park
Halloween Reminders from Maitland Police and Fire-Rescue Departments
 
The Maitland Police Department is actively involved with our city’s families each and every Halloween. The Police Department will have a full complement of police vehicles out during the trick or treat hours from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. to add an additional safety presence across all neighborhoods in the city.
 
Continuing the yearly tradition, Maitland police officers will be busy handing out glow sticks for the kids in our neighborhoods. Not only do the kids love them, but they are also a great safety feature for kids walking in the neighborhoods.
 
Separately, employees at Maitland’s two fire stations will distribute candy to trick-or-treaters from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 31.

Two Nov. 1 Events

The City of Maitland invites all residents, their families and friends to participate in the Mayors’ Sole Challenge, a free 30-minute fun walk, at 8:00 a.m. on Nov. 1, 2014, at Quinn Strong Park at 345 S. Maitland Ave. 

The Mayors’ Sole Challenge, in its third year, is a friendly competition between Winter Park, Eatonville, and Maitland. The municipality with the most participating walkers wins $2,500 for their city to be used on parks, health and wellness.
 
The first 400 participants will receive a free t-shirt, pedometer and healthy breakfast. There will be children’s activities including face painting, an obstacle course, “dance-walking”, Bo Outlaw of the Orlando Magic and more. The event is free to the public; however, online registration in advance of the event is recommended. Register at http://healthycentralflorida.org/?page_id=1218. 
 
The Mayors’ Sole Challenge is presented by Healthy Central Florida, a community-based initiative created and supported by Florida Hospital and the Winter Park Health Foundation. HCF helps local communities embrace policies and programs that seek to create and encourage a culture of health and wellness.
 
Later in the day…
 
Return back to Quinn Strong Park at 7:00 p.m. for a showing of “Muppets Most Wanted.” Get there early and remember – you bring the chair, we will show you the stars!
