HOUSTON - Chickasaw Development Foundation, along with businesses, merchants and church organizations, are sponsoring a night of fun Oct. 31 for children, but priority one is safety and that comes from organization.
"Obviously we want the children to have fun, but ultimately safety is our number one concern," said CDF Executive Director Joyce East.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. and all children must be accompanied by an adult. The candy trail starts at 1st Franklin Financial and will work its way around the Square to Pearson's Drugstore. Volunteers will be on hand for traffic control as the processions crosses Jackson Street and continues down Washington Street and back to the west side of the Square and returns to the blocked off portions.
Following trick-or-treating, a costume contest will be held on the north steps of the Courthouse and the movie, "Hotel Transylvania," will be shown on the east side of the Courthouse. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to watch the movie.
First United Methodist Church, State Farm, Roam Boutique and Chickasaw Journal will provide "trunk-or-treat" in the blocked off streets inside the Square.
