No Spooks with this Wednesday Festival — The festive feel of the upcoming Halloween holiday is sure to be in the air when Pauls Valley’s annual downtown trick or treating event rolls around next week.

Plenty of spooky fun and kids donning their Halloween costumes will again take over much of the local downtown area as the Boo on the Bricks community gathering celebrates its 14th year from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31.

For one local official it’s a time to come together and just have some holiday fun.

“The downtown trick or treating is a very festive thing,” said Della Wilson, president of the Pauls Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“Everyone is involved, young and old,” she said. “It’s a time to come together and just celebrate.

“It will again be providing a safe environment for kids to trick or treat. It’s convenient and easy for the parents.”

At the top of this holiday is naturally the treats as downtown merchants will again be passing out candy to the kiddos throughout the two-hour stretch.

Joining in on the fun is the chamber and Wilson herself as she will dress as a monkey while passing out the sweet stuff.

Candy should again be plentiful at the businesses, along with the fire department and local hospital. PV police officers are also set to be on foot patrol handing out junior badge stickers to children.

Adding to the holiday feel will be sound effects and scary music, along with the growing popularity of a flash mob zombie dance presented by Main Street Pauls Valley.

Kings Kids on Charles Avenue will again offer gospel music, hot dogs and drinks for those stopping by for a visit.

Church of the Nazarene will be giving away hot dogs and letting kids creep through the spook trail at Cook Carson.

During the day volunteers with the United Fund of Pauls Valley will be out and about at downtown intersections for an annual bucket brigade.

“Please come out in your best Halloween costume and get some great treats as local merchants hand out thousands of pieces of candy to spooks, goblins, ghosts and more from across the city,” Wilson said.

“All merchants purchase the treats with their own funds. It’s their way of saying thank you to all who help support Pauls Valley.”
