Safe Trick or Treat event to go on as planned

Despite a scare that the downtown Halloween Safe Trick or Treat would not be held this year, La Grande Main Street has decided the spook is on.

Main Street’s promotion committee voted Tuesday night to host the event, during which streets are closed so children can safely trick or treat and organizations are invited to “Trunk or Treat.”

Main Street members had said they would not host the event if attendance was low at Tuesday’s promotions meeting.

Mary Ann Miesner, a member of the promotions committee, said only one new person showed up, but they felt the event was too big to drop.

It will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 31. Adams Avenue will close at 3:30 p.m. from Greenwood Street to Fourth Avenue. The event will mostly go on as normal, but there will be some changes since Main Street has no acting coordinator. 

“Probably the main difference is we do not have funds to advertise,” Miesner said. Nor does the organization have someone to go door-to-door to businesses asking them to participate like usual.

At the public meeting about Main Street held in August, there was also some discussion about businesses joining forces to find discount candy.

“We don’t even have the volunteers to go check on bulk candy,” Miesner said.

Main Street does plan to provide pumpkins or something small for the participating businesses.

Downtown businesses are encouraged to put out games, coloring pages and other kid-friendly activities.

Promotions Chair Carolyn Thompson said trick-or-treaters don’t have to get candy.

“We want to keep it healthy and reasonable,” she said.

Thompson, who is the circulation director for the Observer, will also oversee the “Trunk or Treat” part of the event, in which groups decorate their cars and provide treats to the children.

“The initial idea (for ‘Trunk or Treat’) was to take the burden off of the businesses downtown,” she said. “We open it up to businesses and nonprofits that are outside Adams Avenue.”
