Main Street Pineville is hosting their annual Trunk or Treat this weekend and organizers are hopeful the event is as successful as it was last year.
Last year’s event had a large turnout, both in those who were there to hand out goodies to the ghouls and ghosts and the witches and princesses that were there to receive the goodies.
The increased turnout of those who were there to pass out the goodies was primarily a result of the election season. Candidates from numerous elections were present at the event to hand out goodies and Main Street Pineville Director Jacob Roan challenges the same individuals who participated last year to show up again this year, regardless if they won their particular election or if they plan on running again in the future.
Roan said he challenges these politicians to continue to show their support, even though it is not an election season.
The trunk or treat will take place on the courthouse square in downtown Pineville. Beginning at 3 p.m. on Sunday, ghouls, ghosts, witches, princesses and the like can begin to trunk or treat in the square with the assistance of a parent or guardian.
The event will take place until 5 p.m. or until those set up run out of candy.
Main Street Pineville’s partner the Children’s Reading Foundation will be at the event handing out age appropriate books to those in attendance. Children will be able to choose from a plethora of books from their age group and will also be able to receive information about the foundations numerous programs. Foundation Director Debbie Knuckles will be there to answer questions about upcoming Ready for Kindergarten sessions that are taking place at local schools.
