The Knox County Chamber of Commerce is hosting their annual Safe Stop Trick-Or-Treat this Halloween, which will be on Saturday, October 31, 2015. The event will take place at the Knox County Community Center in Edina, north of the Knox County Courthouse, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Those wishing to participate and hand out candy or other “treats” during the Safe Stop event may do so by showing up early and setting up at a table, which will be provided. Set up will begin at 3:00 p.m.
Businesses, organizations and individuals are welcome to come had out “treats” during the event. Participants are welcome to bring table decorations and wear costumes for the occasion, which adds to the festivities, but isn’t a requirement.
The Safe Stop event has steadily grown over the past several years as it has attracted more and more children. Last year approximately 280 children visited the event. Those planning to hand out “treats” during Safe Stop should plan for approximately 300+ trick-or-treaters.
Safe Stop Trick-or-Treat continues to be one of the best places to see local children show off their Halloween costumes. This year we’ve decided to offer a live stream of The Edina Sentinel table during Safe Stop so people can enjoy the spectacle of handing out Halloween candy to local ghouls and ghosts right along with us.
We expect to begin live streaming video at the beginning, 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 31, 2015. Tune in anytime between 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to see and hear the happenings of the event. Kids and parents going by our table, who think they might have loved ones watching, are welcome to give them a greeting, a wave or even blow ‘em a kiss!
Our live stream page can be found by either going to our website nemonews.net and clicking on the “Live Video Feeds” option on the main menu bar, then following the link to the “Knox County Live Feed” or by typing the following directly into the address bar of your browser:
See you on Saturday!
