Halloween this year may need an extra hand or two, preferably still attached to a helpful soul.
The Downtown Bradford Business District Authority is currently working with local churches and
other interested parties to gauge interest in holding a possible Trunk-Or-Treat event in Downtown Bradford on Halloween.
The event, slated to be held during the city’s scheduled trick-or-treating hours of 6 to 7:30 p.m., is a proposed adjustment to the regular event held in previous years at Grace Lutheran Church.
“We’re just trying to see what kind of interest we have,” said Main Street Manager, Anita Dolan. “We weren’t sure if we would be able to hold it this year with all the restrictions.”
To ensure the safety of all participants, masks would be required and cars spaced apart to meet social distancing guidelines.
Because of the guidelines and need for extra space, the location would be moved to provide enough area to space out cars. Dolan indicated that Main Street is one possibility, provided there is enough interest.
Dolan said they are partnering with Grace Lutheran Church and Open Arms church again, though they are seeking out others interested in handing out candy during the event.
