Halloween HappeningsOctober 31, 2019
Main Street: Greeneville will be sponsoring “Halloween Happenings” on Thursday, October 31, from 4 to 6 p.m. in downtown Greeneville. All events are free and the public is invited. Merchants, professional offices, banks, churches and the county courthouse will be prepared to treat youngsters with candy if children are under 13 years of age and are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The Costume Contest will be held at the Kathryn Leonard Administrative Building at the corner of West Depot and South Irish Streets beginning at 4:00pm with the winners announced at 6:00pm. The contest will have age categories of 0-3 years, 4-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years and a family entry. Prizes will be awarded to the winners in each age category. Volunteer judges and prizes will be furnished by the Greeneville City Schools Education Foundation. Adults please provide a cell phone number so you may be reached should your child be a winner and need to report back to receive their prize.
More activities, still in the final planning stages, include the annual hay rides, chalk drawing in the street, Spooky Tales in the Old Gaol (Jail), and Haunted Theatre along with Tusculum University’s Arts Outreach Program cast members of ‘Matilda’ who will hand out candy.
Any business not located in the downtown area that would like to participate in handing out treats is asked to please contact the Main Street Office 639-7102 for your location along the route. Further details will be provided to the media closer to the event.
