Free! 2012 Downtown Trick or Treat Event

From a Greenfield Recreation Department press release:

Downtown Greenfield will once again be filled with ghosts and goblins on Wednesday, October 31st as the Greenfield Recreation Department and Greenfield Business Association host our Annual Downtown Trick or Treat.  Downtown Trick or Treat will run from 4:00pm-5:30pm, and our partners WHAI, DJ Bobby C., and GCTV will be broadcasting at the event!

Stop at the Town Common to pick up a Free Trick or Treat Reflective Bag filled with dental hygiene products donated by local dentists. We are also showcasing the spectacular carving work of Andrew Easton who will be exhibiting his pumpkins on the Town Common! The Greenfield Recreation Department’s Rag Shag Parade led by the Greenfield High School band will begin at 5:30pm in the Mohawk Mall parking lot. There is a NEW PARADE ROUTE – the parade will turn right onto Miles Street and end at the Energy Park for Costume Judging and awards will follow.

Anyone who wants to participate in the costume judging should pick up a number tag at the Town Common before the parade begins. Participants will march in the parade according to their costume category, and will be judged following the march (one category per participant). Each category will be called forward to march in front of the judges and GCTV. Awards will then follow. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes in several categories.  Costume categories include: Best Homemade, Most Original, Scariest, Cutest, Best Cartoon Character, Adult Open Category, and a Group/Family Category. Prizes: Savings bonds donated by our local banks and credit unions!

The Garden Theater will be showing It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown for free directly following the costume judging at 6:30pm and a second showing at 7:30pm. The Rotary Club and other groups will be on hand to help assist with the event and hand out candy. There will be no shortage of candy! Downtown Trick or Treat draws around 1500 kids, parents and other family members.  Please contact the Greenfield Recreation Department for more information: 772-1553.
