Thousands of young ghosts, goblins and other characters are expected to hit downtown Commerce Friday night, Oct. 30, as the Downtown Development Authority and Commerce Area Business Association present the Downtown Trick-or-Treat.
The event takes place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will be a costume contest in Spencer Park with prizes awarded for the scariest, most original, cutest and best character costumes. Judging will take place at 4:30 in the park, with winners announced at 5:45.
Trick-or-treaters should be 12 or under, accompanied by an adult and in costume.
The Commerce Police Department will give child ID kits out at the gazebo in Spencer Park and will fingerprint children for the kits at the request of their parents.
Officers will also provide traffic control and security downtown during the duration of the event.
Jefferson will hold its Halloween Walk downtown trick or treat event at the same time.
