GENESEO – This Halloween, sport your best costume on Main Street for the 2nd Annual Trick or Treat extravaganza. The event is free and open to the public, courtesy of the Geneseo Merchants Association.
Be sure to look for the treater silhouette pictured below to identify participating merchants. Over 25 businesses will be handing out treats from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday before the spectacular Kawanis and Rotarty Halloween Parade, to anyone dressed in the season’s spirit.
“Last year’s Trick or Treat was pretty popular,” said Grayce LcLaughlin, owner of Touch of Grayce. “The children we usually see are 4 to 12, accompanied by their parents, but a handful of older students come out as well. As long as you are in costume, we are happy to give out treats.”
After trick or treating on Main Street, participants are welcome to enter in the Rotary and Kawanis Halloween parade starting at 6:30 p.m. Participants should meet in the village park, and the parade will bring trick or treaters to the costume contest at the fountain.
The parade will offer cider and doughnuts provided by Wegman’s, as well as prizes for outstanding costumes.
“It’s a safe option for families,” said David Woods, Rotary President and Costume Judge. “It’s a great alternative to have Halloween fun before nightfall.”
