Trick or Treat on Halloween | RAIN OR SHINE
This Thursday, October 31st is HALL🎃WEEN! Trick or Treat will be on October 31st from 5 to 8 pm within Pickens County and Jasper city limits. 👻🦇💀🍬🕷️⚰️
Downtown Jasper Merchants time is from 4 to 7 pm. See note below from the Jasper Merchants Association on time extension/change. RAIN OR SHINE
FROM JMA: There has been confusion about start and end times for Trick or Treat on Main Street. The JMA originally asked for 4 to 6 and the City of Jasper has graciously extended the event time from 4 pm until 7 pm so that everyone is able to attend and take part. The JMA truly appreciates the relationship we have formed with the City of Jasper and look forward to working with them to bring more fun and free activities for the families of Pickens County to enjoy.
RAIN OR SHINE - Note from Jasper City Manager below:
In consultation with the Jasper Merchants Group and the County, it was determined that it would be best to hold consistent to the existing game plan as originally presented to have the JMA downtown event (4:00 PM to 7:00 PM) and subsequent trick or treating community wide on the recognized day of Halloween on Thursday, Oct. 31st. This decision is predicated on the fact that public safety resources are dedicated to this day and the expectations involves our intentions to foster a safe and fun event for the downtown and community as a whole. We will ask that our residents and guests be mindful of any significant weather events that may necessitate them to avoid outside at times where there is evidence of lightning, etc. Overall, it is our hope that the day and evening is a safe and positive experience for our community.
We anticipate on providing this information to our partners and social media so that the message of consistency is shared.
