Chase City hosts Trunk or Treat downtown

SoVaNow.com / October 24, 2012
It’s late October, and in Chase City that can only mean one thing — time for the annual Trunk-or-Treat party on October 31, a night of sweets, goodies and fun downtown.

The party kicks off at 6 p.m. on North Main Street between Second Street to Fifth Street. Chase City Mayor Eddie Bratton said, “for pedestrian safety, only participating Trunk-or-Treat vehicles will be allowed on the closed section of North Main Street between 6-8:30 p.m. The street will be closed at 5:30 to allow participants to get into place. We welcome participation by anyone wanting to give out their treats to our children in this way.”

Trunk-or-Treat is a great tradition in Chase City that Bratton says is for the “young and young at heart.” Several local churches, town businesses, and civic organizations support the event. The Woman’s Club of Chase City will again sponsor its kid-friendly Haunted House. Admission is only $1.00 per child and proceeds are earmarked for Project Hope at Chase City Elementary School to help students who are in need of food, clothes, and personal hygiene items.

Anyone over the age of 12 is not allowed to wear a mask while seeking treats.

As they have done each year, the Chase City Volunteer Fire Department is serving up their famous hot dogs, chips and candy are being offered by the Chase City Rescue Squad, and the Chamber of Commerce is serving soft drinks.

Bratton invites everyone to attend: “This is a great opportunity for fellowship within our community, and it is a wonderful way to show our young people that we care about them.”
