Connecting Kids with Aviation, in a Not-So-Spooky Setting

CAK to Host First Trick-or-Treat in the Terminal

Akron-Canton Airport (CAK) will host its first Trick-or-Treat in the Terminal on Thursday October 31, 2019 from 6pm-8pm. The Not-So-Spooky event will allow the community to enjoy free admission to a safe (and warm) Halloween experience within the airport.

“Connecting with our community in a meaningful way is a core value of ours, and outreach to kids about future opportunities in aviation and travel is close to our hearts,” said Lisa Dalpiaz, CAK’s Director of Marketing and Air Service Development. “We hope the community will enjoy the facility, interact with aviation experts, and have a great time with family and friends.”

Some of the highlights include not-so creepy crafts, several festive photo opportunities and a robust Touch-a-Truck experience in front of the terminal. First responders participating include City of Green Fire Division, Cover 2 Resources, Jackson Township, Summit County SWAT and the Akron-Canton Airport Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting team.

“Halloween is the perfect opportunity for individuals to dream of what they want to be ‘when they grow up’,” said Dalpiaz. “Why not dream of being a pilot, an aircraft mechanic or a helpful airline gate agent? We want CAK to be the source of inspiration for those dreams.”

Since this event is “not-so-scary,” children of every age can enjoy the fun! The airport asks that the following be considered before attending the event:
1. Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
2. Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.

Parking for the event is complimentary — passes will be handed out at check-in, which is located at the Visitor Information Center inside door three. Attendees should use Long-Term A and Long-Term B lots for complimentary passes.
