Center Broadcasting has learned the annual Trick or Treating on the Center Square has been canceled for this year. The event has been sponsored by the Center Business Association in the past, but due to the disbanding of the CBA, trick or treating on the square will not take place this year. According to JoAnna Martin, former president of the Center Business Association, there were several factors for the event not taking place this year. She said, “One of the primary factors is that the sponsoring organization, the CBA, has disbanded its activities”. She added as the event grew, it was an over-burden to many people, city services and businesses. Plus, the safety of children and traffic safety was another concern, and some businesses on the square were no longer participating. We will be telling you this week of a number of Halloween and Fall Festival events where children and families can have safe fun.
