Halloween activities set for Monday in downtown Seymour

Parents looking for a fun and safe way for their children to trick-or-treat should make their way to downtown Seymour on Monday evening.

Seymour Main Street is once again sponsoring the Downtown Trick-or-Treat where children can dress up in their Halloween costumes and go business to business from 4 to 6 p.m. to receive candy and other goodies. This is the 10th year for the popular event.

All children should be accompanied by an adult. Participating businesses will have signs up in their windows, and there will be activities, music from the Radio 96.3 WJAA Ghoul Bus and giveaways at One Chamber Square, too. Walgreens will once again be providing free fall-themed pictures of kids and families.

Michelle Gossett, event chairwoman, said there are 51 registered businesses and donors, and more may be added.

“We will have candy, balloons, coloring books, discount coupons to various businesses and lots of goodies to share,” she said.

Afterwards, kids and adults can show off their costumes by marching through downtown in the Seymour Evening Lions Club Halloween parade and participating in the costume contest in the American Legion Annex parking lot.
