The winners will be announced during Cruise Knight.
— CruiseKnight-Oct.14 The Fall Cruise Knight is planned for Oct. 14, and there will be vendors of all kinds, along with food vendors/ trucks, bounce houses, and lots of cars.
— Movie Night – Oct. 21 A family friendly, fun Halloween movie night is planned in the park adjacent to the Civic Center. The title hasn’t been announced yet. The Chamber held their first movie night recently and had a great turnout.
“We had a bunch of people show up. We had some food vendors, pizza and things… and the museum opened their doors,” Mooney said.
Depending on the weather, the upcoming movie night may move indoors, but there will still be lots of fun to be had.
— Halloween Block Party Oct. 28 This is the first-ever Halloween block party called “Monster Mash.”
“We have some big things planned for the Monster Mash,” Mooney said. There will be a maze made of hay bales that will be in the pocket park, “and we’ve got a hay supplier that is donating this to us.”
There will be a street dance, costume contest, a live DJ, and the Chamber is inviting craft and food vendors to fill out a form to participate.
“If you’re a Chamber member,” Mooney said, “you won’t have a charge for setting up at the Monster Mash, but if you’re aren’t a chamber member there’ll be a small nominal fee to set up.”
The costume contest will have different prizes awarded in various categories. Everyone is encouraged to be creative and just have fun.
The Chamber is also holding a window decorating contest in the downtown area.
Merchants are urged to decorate the windows and storefronts as much as possible with a Halloween theme. — Downtown Trick or Treat Oct. 31 There will be lots of kids and parents canvassing the downtown area for the annual candy collecting event. The event brings as many as 2,000 kids to downtown and businesses are urged to start stocking up on plenty of candy to pass out.
The event is from 3:30-5 p.m.
