1st Annual Halloween Spook-Tacular a success, says Riverton Chamber

The Riverton Chamber of Commerce hosted its very first Halloween Spook-Tacular last Saturday. If you were anywhere near the Fremont County Fairgrounds during the event, it was busy, to say the least.

“We want to acknowledge and thank all of the amazing people who made this happen,” shared Riverton Chamber Executive Director Ashley Strickland. “The community of Riverton and our wonderful volunteers are the reason it was so successful.”

The Fremont County Fair sponsored the venue and the fairgrounds were perfect, Ashley noted with “an enormous THANK YOU” for their support.


Local businesses collected a total of 270 pounds of candy. Each business decorated a box and the community voted for their favorite by donating a bag of candy.

Businesses included: Dollar Tree, Fremont Chevrolet Buick & GMC, Fremont Therapy, Hampton Inn & Suites, Teton Therapy, Pit Stop, Smart Start, & Forever West.

The top candy collector was Teton Therapy. They won the People’s Choice award donated by R Rec. They brought in 156.5 pounds of candy.

Non-perishable food donations were also collected during the vent. “Our community pulled through, and we were able to make a sizable donation to our friends at Eagles Hope,” Ashley said.


Over 25 businesses and organizations volunteered for the event. They came prepared with trailers, trunks, games, costumes, prizes, and more candy. Ashley shared appreciation for everyone’s time and effort to make this first event a success.
