(Greensboro, Ga.—November 4, 2019) Downtown Greensboro and many of the downtown merchants handed out candy to children 12 and under on Thursday, October 31 from 5-6:30 p.m.

There were no tricks, just treats as hundreds of little Witches, Buzz Lightyears, Little Bo Peeps and many more characters roamed the streets of Greensboro while collecting candy in the pumpkin bags provided by the Main Street Office.

Although it was cold, the rain stopped just in time as the trick-or-treaters began to arrive. The Downtown Merchants had their store fronts decorated for the occasion and many of them dressed up in costume as well, while handing out candy to all the children that came through Greensboro.

Each year Downtown Greensboro’s merchants and the city of Greensboro works hard to help provide our community with a safe place to take part in the tradition of trick-or-treating. Downtown store fronts and windows are decorated for the season and the merchants were ready for a scare.

Downtown Trick-or-Treat allowed kids and their families who are searching for a Spooktacular evening to be safe and have fun at the same time. Thank you to everyone that made this a fun, and thank you to our merchants: Walgreens, City of Greensboro, City Hall, Atlas Ministry, Festival Hall, Greensboro First United Methodist Church, The Yesterday Café, The Pink Stitch, Maggie Lane, Greensboro Jewelers, C.W.Smith Insurance, Los Torres, Greensboro Finance, Genuine Georgia, Dreamcatcher’s Antiques, Friendly Nails, Hair Creations, Murphy’s Gifts, Greensboro Antique Mall, Gerber Collision and First Baptist Chruch of Greensboro.

The next event happening in Downtown Greensboro is the annual Downtown Tree Lighting that will be on December 6, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. Get into the holiday spirit as the town lights the tree and Santa comes for a visit. There will be food, vendors, performances and more. This will be an event that you don’t want to miss. For more information visit: www.DowntownGreensboroGA.com.
