Placeholder Image
It might be a bit early for spotting little ghosts, goblins and monsters, but McMinnville Civic Center is hunting vendors to cater to them during the third annual Trail of Treats on Oct. 30 from 5-7 p.m.“The biggest change for this year is the date,” said program coordinator Kendra Foust. “We decided to offer our event, Trail of Treats, on the day before Halloween so it won’t interfere with Main Street McMinnville’s event.”On Oct. 31, Main Street McMinnville, in partnership with downtown merchants, businesses and churches, will offer Trick or Treat Street. The day-long event will offer trick-or-treating, two costume contests (one for pre-schoolers and one for children after school), and a movie night from 6-8 p.m. More information will be made available as those details are finalized.As for the Civic Center, Trail of Treats will feature booths set up by local churches, businesses, civic groups, etc. Children walk from booth to booth and are treated to candy, games and costume competitions in a safer environment than traditional trick-or-treating.“Parents want a safer alternative to traditional trick-or-treating,” said Foust.
