Area Halloween events planned

The Timpson Area Chamber of Commerce and Timpson Ministerial Alliance are sponsoring Truck or Treat on the Square at 6 p.m. Saturday night, Oct. 25. There will be prizes for the top 2 costumes, $25 each; best decorated trunk or vehicle, $50 each; and a Best Baby Costume prize of $25.


The San Augustine Chamber of Commerce will have a Trunk or Treat at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27 in downtown San Augustine at businesses and the courthouse square. All trick-or-treaters are invited to this free event.


The Center Varsity Baseball Team is inviting all area businesses to be a part of “Halloween in the Hole” from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the varsity baseball field. Since there is no longer a Trick or Treat night on the Center square for the little ones, they are asking local businesses, clubs and civic organizations to set up a table and allow Trick or Treaters to come and enjoy. They will follow the candy giveaway with a fun ballgame with the players in costume. If you are interested in being a part of this event, contact John Michael Burns at 488-1587 or Larry Horn at 590-2965. All you need is a card table, your company banner or sign and some candy. Come have some fun with all the kids. All kids, 12 and under are invited to join in the fun by Trick or Treating a few days early. Come on out and walk thru the park getting candy and having fun. Everyone is invited and trophies will be given out for the best Halloween costumes.


The Shelby County Cruisers will be hosting a Trunk or Treat event. It will be on Oct. 31 at First Baptist Church from 5pm until the candy runs out.
