Community welcomes trick-or-treaters

MILLEDGEVILLE — The holiday for ghosts, goblins and superheroes is here, and various community events and businesses are ready to spook, scare and entertain young visitors and adults alike this Halloween.

Milledgeville-Baldwin County will observe Halloween Thursday with various community-wide events, including:

• Fall Festival at Flagg Chapel Baptist Church off West Franklin Street from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday will feature food, games and hay rides. The church requests visitors to not wear scary costumes.

• Fall Festival at First United Methodist Church off Log Cabin Road from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday will feature a bounce house, pony rides, games, cake walk, face painting, rock wall, hay rides and goodie bags full of prizes. Dinner will be sold and served by preschool board and parents at 5:45 p.m. Hamburger and hotdog plates will be available for $5 along with drinks, snow cones, boiled peanuts and popcorn.

• Fall Festival at New Life Foursquare Church on Jacqueline Terrace starting at 6 p.m. Thursday will feature face painting, kids games, a hurst with live actors, a video,  hotdogs, chips and drinks.

• Milledgeville Main Street’s “Treats 4 Halloween” will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday at which nearly 40 downtown businesses will be participating as Halloween enthusiasts trick-or-treat. Participating merchants can be identified with balloons outside their storefront along with an orange flyer.

• Milledgeville Mall merchants and Milledgeville Hyundai’s Markdown Monster will hand out candy from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday during the annual Mall Trick-or-Treat event. The Civic Woman’s Club will also be on site to face paint and take Halloween pictures of youth in costumes.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, trick-or-treaters should keep safe by avoiding walking alone, examining all treats for choking hazards and tampering, eating only factory-wrapped treats, holding a flashlight while walking, wearing well-fitting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls, and looking both ways before crossing the street.
