EekTown Halloween

The Emporia Main Street Board of Directors met this past Wednesday during our regularly scheduled board meeting (the first and third Wednesday’s of every month). One of the agenda items was discussion of Halloween activities. We will not host Haunted Tours this year, but there was a desire to obtain information from both community members and businesses concerning Trick or Treat related activities. Staff members obtained survey information from businesses, community members, and some “best practices” from organizations throughout the nation and presented the data to board members. In a close six for, four against decision, the board decided to move forward with a very different type of Trick or Treat.
