Marathon Trick-or-Treating: safety is key

If you plan to trick-or treat in the popular area behind the airport in Marathon, here are a few safety rules you will be asked to follow.

Parking will be prohibited on the shoulder of the road and on the bike path which runs parallel with the fence line along Aviation Boulevard. Everyone will be asked to park in the designated parking area on airport property.

Those arriving in the area on Halloween evening/night will enter through the airport gate on Aviation Boulevard. Sheriff’s deputies will be located throughout the area to give directions and a deputy will be there directing traffic into the parking area itself.

Two county school buses will be used to shuttle all trick-or-treaters and other visitors from the parking area to the neighborhood where the Halloween event is taking place. Shuttles will run from 6 to 10:30 p.m. Those who choose to walk instead may do so on the bike path.

Traffic through the neighborhood will be limited to those who live in the area and who are able to produce identification showing their place of residence in that area.


Safety is a primary concern for both the Sheriff’s Office and the city of Marathon. Please follow these guidelines and help keep the event safe for everyone involved.
