LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette are wrapping up a series of pop-up activities known as "SPARK." The 16-week pilot program took place in each of the cities once a week.
On Tuesday, both cities will come together for the final SPARK activities on John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge.
Margy Deverall with the economic development department says $55,000 was set aside for the weekly program that began in June.
Deverall says things went well in Lafayette, but some things could be improved. That includes more marketing to the public. She says there may have been some confusion about what exactly the program had to offer.
"We all individually have opinions of what went well and what we can improve on so we'll just sit down and do that more formally and then make some recommendations of how this could look next year if we do it again," said Deverall.
A decision should be made about the program's future before the end of the year. Tuesday's events will run through 8 p.m.
Activities will be Halloween-themed such as straw bale bowling, pumpkin patch mini golf and of course, trick-or-treating. A costume parade will also take place at 4:30 p.m. It will be led by mayors Tony Roswarski and John Dennis.
