PICKENS – Trick or Treat on Main is coming to Pickens for one spooktacular night on Oct. 31.
Hosted by Cannon Memorial Hospital and the City of Pickens, Trick or Treat on Main will be held on West Main Street in downtown Pickens from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Families will enter through a marked entrance on the corner of Main Street and Ann Street.
A children’s costume contest will be set up near the end of the trail. Prizes will be awarded in several age divisions and winners will be contacted by phone Nov. 2.
“It’s great that the community comes out and works together to make a safe place for kids to trick or treat. Last year was our first costume contest, and with over 3,000 kids attending, this year we hope it to be even bigger and better. An event like this really shows how remarkable Pickens is,” said Amanda Cooper, the hospital’s Community Relations Assistant.
A variety of local businesses and agencies are teaming up to make this year the best yet. Spaces are still available for groups to join the trick or treat trail.
Free parking is available at the Pickens County Museum, the Pickens County Courthouse or Legacy Square. The event is smoke and alcohol free event. Pets will not be allowed. Contact Cooper at 864-898-1334 for more information or for information in the event of inclement weather.
