MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Get your "Creep On" in Crosstown for Halloween goodies, family fun and art!

Crosstown Arts, Clean Memphis and Urban Art Commission (UAC) partnered for the Creep Sweep Crosstown Trunk-a-Treat on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 10:00am - 2:00pm.

Organizers expect it to become an annual event with face painting, art activities, mural installations, food trucks and a community cleanup.

Organizers also said the inaugural event will celebrate the excitement and energy of the new Crosstown Concourse with a community cleanup event to beautify the North Parkway underpass in preparation for the St. Judge Marathon and future public art projects.

Porsche Stevens, with Crosstown Arts Community Engagement , describes the current state of the underpass as, "...a half-mile stretch of nondescript concrete looming on either side of the road, with unlimited potential to serve as a welcoming point of the artery between Downtown and Midtown which sees 18,000 to 20,000 cars traveling through it daily."

Stevens says those numbers will likely increase from renewed activity generated by Crosstown Concourse, the Greenline and expansions from the nearby St. Jude campus.
