Main Street gears up for annual festival

CHICKASHA —

Local boys and ghouls are invited to Chickasha Main Street Association's annual Neeowollah celebration on Chickasha Ave. 

"Neeowollah" is "Halloween" spelled backwards, but the same rules apply. Children 12 and under dress up and collect candy from door to door. For Neeowollah, however, they collect candy from local businesses along Chickasha's Main St. 

Neeowallah is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 31 on Chickasha Ave. 

The celebration is also a treat for businesses, Andrew Ford, Chickasha Main St. Director, said. 

"It's a chance for them to showcase their business," Ford said. 

Merchants from 2nd St. to 8th St. along Chickasha Ave. are invited to pass out candy to children as they walk by. Ford said that this provides exposure for businesses.

There is no need for businesses to request permission if located within the defined area between 2nd and 8th St. on Chickasha Ave. 

All children must be accompanied by a parent. 

Ford said the trick or treat event has been an annual tradition for Chickasha Main Street for many years.
