Everyone in the community is invited to come to downtown Madison this Halloween for a spooktacular good time. The Madison Police Department will be hosting the downtown trick-or-treat event again this year.
There are over 20 local businesses participating in this year’s event. Businesses and volunteers will hand out all kinds of delicious Halloween candy to the children who participate. It is not to late for businesses to sign up to hand out candy to the children.
This event began as a way to ensure the safety of children on Halloween. By centralizing most of the children in downtown, the Police Department hopes to prevent anything bad from happening to them. Downtown is well lit and there will be several police officers throughout the event to make sure that the kids are safe.
Businesses will begin handing out candy at 6 p.m. They will continue to until 8 p.m. The police department would like to encourage anyone whom would like to participate in this event to come join them on Halloween night.
Anyone wishing to pass out candy should call by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28.
