POMEROY — Planning is nearly complete for Pomeroy’s first “Treat Street” event.
A year after council originally mentioned moving Trick-or-Treat to the downtown business area, a group of organizers are coming together to make that a reality.
Volunteers meet on Monday to discuss additional plans for the event which will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 31.
Mayor Jackie Welker emphasized that although trick-or-treaters will not be in the residential areas of town this year, those residents are encouraged to come down and pass out candy along Main Street.
Downtown merchants will be passing out candy and treats, along with many other businesses, organizations and groups from around the area.
Just because a business is not located in the downtown business area does not mean they are not welcome to participate. Any business, organization, or person is welcome to set up and pass out treats.
Activities planned for treat street include costume judging, face painting, pumpkin decorating, music, candy, photo booth, and activities for kids of all ages.
The event is free to anyone who wishes to participate.
Main Street will be shutdown in the downtown area beginning at 4 p.m. on Oct. 31 to help accommodate the event.
