Prattville – On Friday, October 30, the City of Prattville and the merchants and business owners of Prattville Downtown Unlimited (PDU) will once again help children celebrate an afternoon of trick-or-treating.
Numerous crimes are reported each year of the intent to harm children during Halloween. But, with Candy Walk, parents can breathe easy and not worry about the possible dangers of taking their little ones to unfamiliar neighborhoods.
Toddlers through second-graders can trick-or-treat from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM and the walk begins at Prattville City Hall.
Prattville Mayor Jim Byard Jr. explained that both the parents and the children can benefit from Candy Walk.
“The Candy Walk is our annual event that has become a safe and secure alternative to the traditional neighborhood trick-or-treating,” Byard said. “We (downtown merchants and business folks) look forward to welcoming the ghouls and goblins for this family fun event each year.”
All children participating in the event are asked to bring a non-perishable canned food item to be donated to the Autauga Interfaith Care Center.
For more information, please call the City of Prattville’s Special Events Director, Kellie Cook, at 358-0297.
