The Lehigh Valley IronPigs hosted hundreds of children and their families during the club's fourth annual Suites-n-Treats at Coca-Cola Park on Wednesday night. The IronPigs Charities event presented by Air Products is intended to offer a safe and entertaining "trick-or-treating" experience for underprivileged and special needs children in the Lehigh Valley.
In addition to "trick-or-treating", there were a number of other activities for the youngsters, including the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind Trick-or-Treat bags, design special Halloween cookies, have their Halloween photos taken and much more.
The event took place on the Club Level with the support of the IronPigs' suite holders, who took advantage of the opportunity to decorate their suite so the children could go "door-to-door" for a unique "trick-or-treating" experience. In total, all 20 suites along with the outdoor PenTeleData party porches were decorated for Suites-n-Treats.
