The town’s annual Halloween Party takes place Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 3-5 p.m. as kids–under 10–visit participating businesses for Halloween treats after school.
Both kids and adults get in the act as many store owners and employees costume for the day, then hand out the treats after school as the little goblins visit the stores.
A $50 savings bond is awarded to a costumed worker who registers with Katie Craft at Trustmark Bank. To enter, call Craft and tell her how you are costumed. Give her your name, phone number and place of employment. The winner’s name is drawn between 3 and 5 p.m. as the Halloween party really gets underway with kids visiting the stores.
Most appreciate the daylight trick-or-treat trek through town in a safe and supervised manner.
The town’s “official” trick or treat hours, set aside for neighborhoods, are from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 31, but many find the 3-5 downtown outing sufficient.
The town’s Halloween Party is one of the Chamber’s most popular events, attracting hundreds of costumed kids (and their parents) to local stores.
