TUCKER, Ga. (October 31, 2018) – Tucker’s Main Street will be packed Wednesday as thousands of costume-clad kids get their sugar fix at the annual Trunk or Treat celebration. The event, organized by the Tucker Farmers Market and DeKalb County Police Tucker Precinct, offers families a safe, walkable alternative to traditional trick-or-treating.
At 2 p.m. Wednesday, police will shut down Main Street from Railroad Avenue north to Lavista Road as dozens of businesses, churches and other non-profits line the street to set up their trunks. From 4-8 p.m. trick-or-treaters will be able to collect candy, enjoy free bounce houses and face painting, as well as craft activities courtesy of Tucker First Baptist Church and Tucker High School. Cotton candy, balloon animals and train rides will all be available at a small cost.
“We’re always glad to welcome families from in and around our Tucker community to come and experience Main Street,” said Tucker’s City-Community Connector Sonja Szubski. “This top-notch, volunteer-run event is a great way for them to see Tucker at its very best. It’s sure to be a ghoulishly good time.”
The City of Tucker will continue its annual tradition of having a trunk at Trunk or Treat. In an unscientific Facebook poll conducted Tuesday, 77 percent of respondents said they would prefer the City give out sweet treats at its trunk, rather than the 23 percent who voted for healthy snacks. In the spirit of democracy, the City will be offering an array of chocolate goodies, as well as special treats for kids with chocolate or peanut allergies.
