Yes, There Will Be A Trick or Treat Street
All you Ninja Turtles, Elsas, and Rocketmen can relax – those reports of the cancellation of this year’s Trick or Treat Street’s were widely exaggerated! The event is on – with more enthusiasm than ever!
This annual Halloween event will be held on W. 7th Street (first two blocks) and allow children to go traditional door to door Trick or Treating in a safe, supervised environment. Halloween falls on a Friday this year, with the event will be from 5 to 9 on October 31.
Amanda Stinnett has taken over organizational responsibilities, with help from Bernadette Bifano. The team is requesting community donations in the form of candy or cash. Candy donations can be dropped off at the following locations: ALCO, the Leadville Sanitation District building which is located on the SW corner of McWethy and Hwy 24 South, Wells Financial Services (in the post office building), and the Stapletons are happy to accept donations at their house located on 118 W. 7th Street.
It takes about $1000 to put on Trick or Treats Street, which provides candy for 700 ghosts and goblins . There’s never been a year when they HAVEN’T run out of candy, so if you’re in a position to pick up some extra treats or make a financial contribution contact Amanda Stinnett at 719-293-0099.
