Ghost, goblins and characters of all kinds…Are you ready for Walker Street Trick-or-Treat? We have 55 businesses ready for you! It’s not a trick, if you stop by participating businesses between 9-5 Thursday, you will get a treat! If you see the Chamber pumpkin in the window, you will know the business is still handing out treats!
As you attend this and other festivities, please keep the following in mind for a SAFE HALLOWEEN:
