Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street Returns for Tenth Year
Decade of Success has Created a Halloween Tradition in Clinton County
Plattsburgh, N.Y.—The City of Plattsburgh and WPTZ News Channel 5 are proud to present the tenth annual “Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street” at the Crete Civic Center.
On Friday night, October 25th, 2013 from 6-8 pm, the Crete Civic Center will once again host this increasingly popular event. The Civic Center will be transformed into a safe neighborhood where children can go from house to house and gather goodies without the worries of cars, strangers or tainted candy. The focus this year has been on increasing the efficiency of the event. Safety Street will now have two separate lines for families to travel through, lessening wait time.
Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to own a “home” on Safety Street and showcase their businesses to thousands of local children who are accompanied by their parents. In exchange for sponsorship, houses will be constructed, painted and decorated by the Recreation Department. Each house will have prominently displayed signs advertising “the owner” of the house. New this year, there will be coupon books with deals from local businesses. There is limited space available for this popular event, so businesses are encouraged to reserve their houses as quickly as possible.
Those interested in purchasing “homes” or a spot in the coupon book for the 2013 Safety Street can register on-line at www.plattsburghrecreation.com or contact the Recreation Department office at 518-324-7709.
