Meigs County trick or treat Oct. 29

By Lindsay Kriz -

MEIGS COUNTY — With sports games Friday night and Halloween on the weekend, the communities of Meigs County have decided that Oct. 29 is the day for all the little goblins, ghouls, mummies and Elsas to hit the streets for Trick or Treat.

For Pomeroy, the annual Treat Street event will be Oct. 29 from 6:30-8 p.m. Portions of Main Street will be closed during this time for the safety of trick or treaters, with local businesses remaining open or setting up booths along the strip near Pomeroy Parking Lot. Other organizations will be available to pass out candy to participants as well.

Middleport’s trick or treat event is always held the Thursday before Halloween, Mayor Michael Gerlach said, with Middleport trick or treat events starting lasting from 6-7 p.m. However, before regular trick or treat starts, there will be a Trick or Treating event at the old Meigs Junior High School building beginning at 5 p.m. There will be games, concessions and regular trick or treating as well. The building will be the future home of the Meigs County Council on Aging, who plan to move into the facility completely in the next few years.

Racine’s trick or treat event will be Oct. 29 from 6-7 p.m., with a little Halloween party held at the local fire station for trick or treaters. Meanwhile, just upriver, Syracuse will also have their trick or treat event Oct. 29 from 6-7:30 p.m., with a rain date of Friday, Oct. 30 at the same time. Side streets will be blocked off so that trick or treaters can safely collect candy on the main road.

Both Chester Township and Rutland will have their trick or treat Oct. 29 from 6-7 p.m., with Tuppers Plains holding theirs Oct. 29 from 7-8 p.m.
