The city of Plattsburgh, WPTZ News Channel 5, and Latremore’s Insurance Agency will present the eighth annual “Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street” at the Crete Memorial Civic Center Friday Oct. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The civic center will once again be transformed into a safe neighborhood where children can go from house to house and gather goodies without the worries of cars, strangers or tainted candy.
“We are always excited to put this event on,” said Superintendent of Recreation Steve Peters. “Our staff really gets into it and makes it fun. With the overwhelming support from area businesses and thousands of children dressed up in costumes, it’s definitely an event that should not be missed.”
Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to sponsor a “home” on Safety Street and showcase their businesses to thousands of local children who are accompanied by their parents. In exchange for sponsorship, houses will be constructed, painted and decorated by the city recreation department. Each house will have prominently displayed signs advertising “the owner” of the house. There is limited space available for the event, so businesses are encouraged to reserve their houses as soon as possible.
Those interested in sponsoring homes may register on-line at www.plattsburghrecreation.com or contact the recreation department office at 324-7709.
