The event will be a ghostly fun Halloween celebration which will include safe trick or treating at downtown businesses for hundreds of children — and lots of spooky fun. This event is a great way to showcase our local businesses located on Second Street. Bring the kids downtown for some candy and shopping fun. Recommended ages are 12 and younger. New this year will be the addition of local civic organizations joining in on the fun by handing out treats as well.
Safe and Healthy Halloween at Dallas County Hospital will be held on Oct. 30 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. Head up to Dallas County Hospital for a fun, safe and healthy Halloween experience!
City-wide trick or treating will be held on Oct. 30 from 6 – 8 p.m. Make sure to turn your front lights on if you want kids to come to your door for treats. Please be aware that there will be a lot of children out and about, so drive with caution. Let’s have a fun and safe Halloween.
November Chamber events
Stay tuned for the return of the annual donkey basketball game, which is sure to bring a great time. Local celebrities riding donkeys while playing basketball — does it get any better than that?
The annual Election Day Chili Feed will be on Nov. 6 from 11 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. at the Rec Center with all-you-can-eat chili and a great assortment of pies for sale. Come out to vote and stay for chili. Tickets will be available soon. New this year: the Chamber board is bringing back an old tradition — we are going to be making the chili and soup from scratch. Rumor has it that we have Carolyn McNeil’s secret recipe and will be reliving the “good old day” with some homemade chili, soup and pies. If you would like to donate a pie or join in on the fun in any way, please contact the Chamber. This is a big fundraiser for us, and it allows us to continue to promote our business community through all of our great events and programs. So please come out and eat.
Think Perry first. Shop locally.
Are you tired of hearing about businesses closing on Second Street? I know I am. There is a simple solution to stop this from happening — think Perry first. Shop locally. If you can purchase it in Perry, do it. The more we support our local businesses, the more they give back. Shopping locally is a way to keep Perry the great place that it is.
