Trick or Treat with Brownsville merchants this Halloween

Trick or Treat with Brownsville merchants this Halloween

Brownsville Tennessee (October 2, 2018): Brownsville and Haywood County merchants invite area children, age 12 and under, to “Trick or Treat with Me” on Wednesday, October 31, from 4-6 p.m. This is the 11th year for the event which is sponsored by the Brownsville Business Association (BBA) and has become a favorite among children and adults.

The event began when BBA members recognized a need for a safer alternative to traditional trick or treating. By remaining open later and offering this service to the children, merchants feel that they are providing a safer environment for the young people of our community.

“No parent wants to take their children trick or treating in a neighborhood they are not familiar with,” says BBA President Diane Hooper, “this way the kids get to experience the excitement of going door-to-door and the parents can feel safer knowing the merchants have the best interest of the children at heart.”

“Trick or Treat with Me” is open to children ages 12 and under and each child is encouraged to dress in his or her favorite costume. Parents will recognize participating merchants by the purple and orange “Trick or Treat with Me” poster in windows. Last year over 20 businesses stayed open late for this special event.

For a complete list of participating businesses, search Brownsville Business Association on Facebook or call 731-779-9000. If your business is interested in participating, you can also call 731-779-9000 for more information and to be added.

CAPTION: Brownsville merchants participating in this year’s “Trick or Treat with Me” will be posting this sign on their windows and doors. The event is planned for Wednesday, October 31, from 4-6 p.m.
