Third Annual Trick or Treat on Main Street this Halloween

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are falling, pumpkin spice everything is everywhere and soon little goblins and ghouls will be hitting the streets for the annual phenomenon of gathering more candy than their friends. In order to keep the night both fun and safe, community members and local officials are inviting any and all to the third annual Trick or Treat on Main Street on Halloween.

Princeton Mayor Kota Young says that the city will be blocking off a portion of Main Street so that local businesses and organizations can set up booths to hand out candy. He adds that the Princeton Rotary Club will also be setting up an area with small carnival type games during the event.

Mayor Young notes that there is no charge to set up a booth but each group must provide their own table, chairs, candy, and any decorations they may want to use. Parents are being encouraged to take advantage of the safety of the downtown event and bring their children to fill up their treat bags between 4:30 and 7:30PM on Thursday, October 31st.

Those interested in setting up a booth are being asked to sign up by contacting Mayor Young at or by calling Princeton City Hall at 270-365-9575.
