Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect a decision late this morning to reschedule Treat Street for Tuesday because of expected rain on Halloween.
Young costumed characters of all ages, with their parents in tow, are excited to visit Treat Street to see what sort of goodies they can gather from each booth at the park.
Halloween Treat Street, a free event sponsored by Savannah’s Parks and Recreation Department, takes place Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at Tennessee Street Park, 200 Tennessee St.
“We want to invite and encourage folks to come out for Treat Street,” said Larry Arendall, Parks and Recreation director. “More than 20 businesses, churches and organizations of all sorts have set up booths for the event. We are thankful to all those who are making a difference for the youth in our community.”
Expect to see a few surprise characters in the park,” said Arendall. “Look for Spiderman, Big Bird and Elmo.”
Enter the main entrance to the park from Tennessee Street Park. Once inside, signs will direct visitors for the best route to visit all booths.
Additional parking is available at the annex parking lot on the corner of Cumberland and Tennessee Streets.
“We ask that you not block the parking lot area of First Cumberland Presbyterian Church. They are conducting preschool and parents will be picking up their children at that time,” Arendall added.
