Main Street offers treats for dressed up kids

CHICKASHA — Local businesses will have an opportunity this Oct. 31 to hand out candy alongside some sweet promotion.

Main Street Trick or Treat, previously known as Neewollah, will take place from 5 to 7 p.m on Oct. 31 on Chickasha Main St.

At 5 p.m., businesses downtown will close their doors for the event and children up to age 13 are welcome to dress up and trick or treat up and down Chickasha Ave.

Businesses will need to bring their own candy, tables and promotional materials. These can be flyers, coupons, notice of discount, or promotional items such as pencils, stickers or buttons with the name of the business printed on them.

Allen said that Main Street Chickasha is excited to work with businesses for this event. Businesses are welcome to call even up to the morning of Oct. 31 and she will find a location for the business to set up. Businesses from Kansas and Choctaw are welcome.

"It's an opportunity for businesses to show some hospitality and make connections with the community," Allen said. "This is an opportunity. We can use it to its fullest."

The Main Street Trick or Treat presents a safer alternative for trick or treaters than wandering the streets on a night when there is so much traffic.

The 5 to 7 p.m. time slot also leaves plenty of time for church and family events afterwards.

Making the trek up and down Chickasha Ave. will also give the family an opportunity to get a little exercise and wear them out for bedtime, since Oct. 31 falls on a school night this year.

The candy should keep the trick or treaters occupied while the giveaways, sales and other treats will give something for the grown ups to look forward to.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Chickasha Main Street membership is $150 annually, but Chickasha Main Street is also looking for larger investors who may be interested in downtown projects.

Allen sends an update to Main Street Chickasha members once a month, and physically delivers updates once a quarter.

Anyone can receive updates, even if they are not a member of Main Street Chickasha by submitting their email address to Allen at laurie@chickashamainstreet.org.

Staying face to face with the community is important to Allen.

"I want to have that personal touch with our district," she said.

Allen said that the response Main Street Chickasha has been positive and that there have been comments that people seem to be taking more pride in Chickasha businesses.

Businesses who are interested in participating in Main Street Trick or Treat can contact Allen by emailing laurie@chickashamainstreet.org or by calling 405.829.0222.
