If you just can’t wait until October 31…
If you can’t wait for October 31 to trick-or-treat, there are a couple of opportunities to get at it early.
Saturday, Oct. 21 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Warren Mall, the Achievement Center along with ten local businesses and organizations will host its annual Trail of Treats. Halloween treats and trinkets will be handed out to nearly 300 area children and attendees are encouraged to dress in costume for the parade throughout the Warren Mall concourse, where stations will be set up representing local sponsors. Halloween crafts and activities can be found throughout the mall Saturday, along with treats, according to Shannon Collins, Chief Communications Officer for the Achievement Center. “This annual event is a chance for kids to have a safe, warm, and fun trick-or-treat experience as they learn about local organizations right in the community,” she said. Admission to the event is $1 for children 12 and under. This year’s Trail of Treats participants include the Barber National Institute, Beacon Light, Bollinger Enterprises, Experience, Inc., Family Services of Warren County, Forest-Warren Human Services, Russell UMC Daycare, Don Mills Achievement Center, PNC Bank, and Forest Warren Mental Wellness Association.
Next Saturday, Oct. 28, there are two opportunities to trunk-or-treat. From 4 to 6 p.m. the First Church of God will host its annual trunk-or-treat with games and treats, as well as hot dogs, chips, and a drink for $1. The First Church of God is at 1111 Madison Avenue in Warren.
Also next Saturday, from 6 to 8 p.m., families can visit the harvest carnival at Calvary Chapel, 8160 Market St. in Russell, Pa. Games, candy, balloons, and popcorn will be available at Calvary Chapel’s door-to-door Halloween alternative event.
