TRI-CITY AREA — Watch for ghouls and goblins, fairies and footballers to roam local streets collecting all the sweet treats they can find this Friday for Halloween.
Here's a roundup of area trick-or-treating hours as set by municipalities—
In Almont, the middle school's service learning class will host a Halloween parade from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Costumed kids will walk the school halls in their finery.
In Berlin Twp., the Lionesses will host their first annual Halloween Trunk or Treat event on Friday from 6-8 p.m. in the A&B Trucking parking lot in downtown Berville, 417 North Ave.
Participants are welcome to pass out candy from their decorated car trunks, wagons or trailers. Traditionally, simple games are also provided for the costumed crew to play as they go begging.
The Lionesses will hand out cash prizes for the best decorated trunks, too—$100 for first, $75 for second and $50 for third.
Trunk or treating is considered a safe alternative to going door to door, especially for families in rural areas. It also gives rural residents who might otherwise not get trick-or-treaters a chance to join in the fun.
For more information about the Trunk or Treat event, call Peggy or Kathy at (586) 784-8210.
