Thousands of children and their parents crowded into Riverview’s annual Trick or Treat Street event Saturday, held at Riverview High School. It is thought to be one of the largest such family-events in the nation.

The event, presented by the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce and Riverview High School included dozens of local businesses providing thrills, chills, candy and toys to the children in attendance.

The crowd grew early on with a line to enter stretching nearly the length of the school. For children and their parents, the event offered a safe and fun way to enjoy Halloween. It also provided what must be one of the most terrifying of all venues: a haunted school bus.

Sponsors included Pepsi, Mosaic, TECO, Tampa Bay Times, Carr Pediatric Dentistry, Hess Orthodontics, Hull and Booth Photography, Lowes of Riverview, The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and Hillsborough County, South Bay Hospital, Chris’s Plumbing Service, SweetBay Supermarkets, Century 21 Beggins, Kona Ice, S&S Tacos/Pizza & Stuff, C1 Bank, You Say When Yogurt Shoppe along with several local churches and other businesses.
