The event is free to the public and is designed for children up to age 13, with adult supervision.

“Children will have the opportunity to come down to the Square and trick-or-treat around the Square with the businesses who are in the downtown area,” said Dianna Lee, marketing officer for Troy Bank & Trust and a member of the committee. “We also have several other businesses who aren’t located in downtown but are setting up booths and activities for the children. We expect it to be a terrific time for our community and partnering with the homecoming parade just makes it even more fun.”
