Trunk Or Treat
Speaking of Main Street, there is plenty of parking for folks who want to Trunk Or Treat. Feel free to decorate the trunk of your car and hand out goodies. It’s a well lit area and the Booster Club’s Halloween Carnival is across the street in the City Gym.
The gym entrance is between the Whitmire fire department buildings on Gilliam Street. The carnival offers games, music, costume contest for adults and youth. This long running event is the Booster Clubs’ biggest fund raiser. All of these activities are within a circle of each other off Main Street.
