Trick or Treat Street is Ready With Sweets!
Leadville’s Trick or Treat Street will be held on the first two-hundred blocks of W. 7th Street tomorrow Friday, Oct. 31 from 5 – 9 p.m. This annual event allows children to go door to door Trick or Treating in a safe, supervised environment.
This year, Amanda Stinnett took over organizational responsibilities, with help from Bernadette Bifano. The team has received some generous cash and candy donations this year from ALCO, Wild Bill’s, The Mule Kick, City On A Hill Coffee, The King Family, Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), Order of the Eastern Star (OES) Colorado Chapter #2, Cloud City Medical, Lady Sage Vacation Rental, Liz Stuart/8th Street Bookkeeping, Leadville Liquors, Helping Hands, The Lafferty Family, Leadville Today, The St. Vincent Hospital Foundation, Leadville Lions Club, The Miller Family, Silver City Conoco, Neenan Construction, and The Overland Property Group (owners of the Tabor Grand Hotel Apartments).
“So many people gave anonymously or contributed candy to the event,” said Stinnett, who has collected more than $1,500 for the annual event. Hopefully that means that there will be plenty of candy supplies for all of the generous residents on the first two-hundred block of West 7th Street, who lavishly decorate their homes and give out goodies to the Trick-or-Treaters at this FREE family-fun event.
Neenan Construction and Overland are also taking extra safety pre-cautions to make sure that the kiddos are safe in the area, which has been under construction as the Tabor Grand Hotel under goes a $7 million dollar renovation. However, parents are still encouraged to use extra caution around any scaffold/construction area. Neenan also told Leadville Today that they have planned a special Halloween fence decoration for the west side of their caged area. Can’t wait to see what they come up with!
