West Sacramento, CA - Flick Or Treat is back for its third year at Raley Field. The community trick-or-treat event, presented by California Family Fitness, will feature a special screening of Sony's Hotel Transylvania 2 on the ballpark videoboard on Saturday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m. Flick Or Treat is also a part of Dinger's Drive In, a three-part movie series on the field at Raley Field.

Pre-movie trick-or-treating on October 15 will occur from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis before the movie screening begins. Various local partners and organizations, including California Family Fitness, Blue Star Moms, Yolo County Library, and more will be in attendance, handing out treats and other goodies. Local media, including KCRA, The Sacramento Bee, K-LOVE, and 107.9 The End will also be participating. The Yolo Basin Foundation is bringing live Mexican Free Tailed bats. Additional pre-movie activities include a costume contest, corn hole, candy corn counting, Dinger coloring, and much more.

Also new this year at Flick Or Treat is Dinger's Goods Drive. Starting Saturday, October 15th Dinger will be collecting household goods, canned and dry goods, baby supplies, and new and gently used clothing to give back to those in need. Those who donate will receive a discount coupon to be used at the River Cats On Deck Shop at Raley Field. The drive begins at Flick Or Treat and will last through Friday, November 4.

Hotel Transylvania 2, Sony's ghoul-filled animated adventure - featuring the voice talents of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, and Selena Gomez - was released in 2015. The family-friendly comedy about Dracula's "monsters-only" resort and his half-human, half-vampire grandson is rated PG.

To ensure the best viewing of the videoboard, families and movie lovers of all ages in attendance will be seated in the lower seating bowl or on the field under the stars. Guests are strongly encouraged to bring a blanket when sitting on the field (no chairs are permitted).

The screening is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. Trick-or-treating and family friendly activities will begin when gates open at 4:30 p.m. Tickets for all children are $6 while adults are $8. Season Passes for Dinger's Drive In are still available for just $10. Tickets can be purchased online or by visiting the Round Table Ticket Office at Raley Field. This event is rain or shine.
