A Halloween "Out for Blood" event combines an American Red Cross blood drive with a fall festival.
From noon to 4 p.m Thursday, the public is invited to donate blood at the TRAC facility in Pasco. TRAC is at 6600 Burden Blvd. Walk-up registration is welcome, though appointments can be made in advance.
Canned food also will be collected. All participants who donate blood or up to five cans of food will receive a 5-by-7 professional portrait from Kim Fetrow Photography.
There also will be a number of family-aimed activities available, including a trick-or-treat street for children, juice and cookies, hayrides, pumpkin painting and live music, lasting until 8 p.m.
Visitors are welcome to wear their Halloween costumes.
Circle K and Imageworks are sponsors.
