In Sheldon, Chamber Coordinator Allison Cooke tells us there are three different kinds of trick-or-treating in Sheldon, and all three will be on Halloween — Friday, October 31.
She says this year they have the highest number of participating businesses that they’ve ever had. About 28 businesses will be participating in the downtown trick-or-treating. But it doesn’t end there.
Again, you can start at the library at 3:30, trick or treat downtown from 4:30 to 5:30, Citywide trick-or-treating is from 5 to 7, and trick-or-treating at Sanford Senior Care is from 6 to 7 PM.
In Sibley, Chamber Director Sheryl Peters says they’ll have downtown trick-or-treating too, but they have more planned too.
She says just because Halloween is over on Friday doesn’t mean the costumed fun has to stop.
Again, the race is on Saturday in Sibley.
In Rock Rapids, the fun actually starts on Thursday night, says Chamber Director Angie Jager.
She says they’ll also have the annual downtown Halloween Parade.
