Home More News City, Chamber invite kids to Treat. All. Out. on Halloween night

With heavy rain and wind in the forecast for Thursday, the City of Johnson City and Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to bring trick-or-treating indoors for area children. Treat. All. Out. will take place from 4-7 p.m. at Memorial Park Community Center, 510 Bert St. Area businesses, City departments and partner agencies will be on hand to provide candy and other goodies.
“The possibility of Halloween being rained out was just too sad,” said Johnson City Communications and Marketing Director Keisha Shoun. “In the spirit of Johnson City’s motto, “Go. All. Out.,” we decided not to just sit back and let the weather take over. We worked with our Chamber of Commerce and Parks and Recreation Department to find a solution so that kids – and their parents – could still enjoy the holiday.”
Trick-or-Treat on Walnut Street will still take place from 3:30-5:30 p.m., and citizens are advised that trick-or-treaters still may come knocking Thursday.
“This event is not to take the place of traditional trick-or-treating but rather to offer families an indoor venue for those activities,” Shoun said.
