City of Tuscaloosa Hosts Second Annual ‘Tech-or-Treat’ Night at Tuscaloosa Gateway

City of Tuscaloosa Hosts Second Annual ‘Tech-or-Treat’ Night at Tuscaloosa Gateway

The City of Tuscaloosa will host a “tech-or-treat” event on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Tuscaloosa Gateway Innovation and Discovery Center, located at 2614 University Blvd East.

This event is similar to trunk-or-treating, where children go from trunk to trunk to collect candy, typically in school or church parking lots. The tech-or-treat event will feature City departments and various community organizations passing out candy to guests in costume. Along with candy, guests will also have the opportunity to receive tech-related items, from cell phone accessories to digital storage devices.

“This is a great opportunity for kids to come out and enjoy a safe, family-friendly fall event and also check out how the Tuscaloosa Gateway can be a resource to them,” said Michelle Smart, community engagement manager for the City of Tuscaloosa. “We love any opportunity to partner with our community organizations to spotlight STEM opportunities for kids in our area and that’s exactly what we plan to do with this event.”

The event is free and open to all ages, but children must be accompanied by an adult.
