Trick or Treat
A favorite pastime, trick or treating, is a tradition that brings Gordon Countians of all ages together to mingle and collect as much candy as possible.
This year, Calhoun will be celebrating Halloween from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Monday Oct. 31 in downtown, according to Downtown Development Authority Director Suzanne Roland.
“These will be the hours the downtown merchants are allowed to do trick or treating this year,” she said.
Gordon County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Robert Paris also said extra patrol will be out on Halloween to ensure residents’ safety.
Paris also said children should be accompanied by a responsible adult and wear reflective materials that are highly visible at dusk/dark. carry a flashlight after darkness has fallen, be mindful of traffic and parents should examine candy and other treats before they are consumed.
