Jennings Sunday: 'Sweet Street' draws thousands on Halloween


Follow The Republic:


NORTH VERNON — Children of all ages through sixth grade are invited to celebrate Halloween with their parents at “Sweet Street,” sponsored by the First Christian Church.

The annual tradition drew an estimated 4,000-plus people last year.

The free family event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 31 in the city parking lot located behind the downtown church.

All children will receive a wristband that will allow them to play all games, jump in the two bouncy houses and receive candy at more than 25 booths.

There will be a variety of door prizes for adults.

Kids and their families will also have an opportunity to see the Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle and a firetruck as well as talk with local firefighters.

Snacks and drinks will be provided inside the Solid Rock Cafe. Popcorn will be served outside near the festivities.

The event is designed to be a safe alternative to traditional trick-or-treating.

Businesses, churches and civic organizations are encouraged to set up a booth. However, political entries are not eligible to participate with booths.

For more information, contact Angee Leeds, First Christian Church youth director, at 346-3177.
