Due to the forecasted rain for Thursday, the Downtown Statesville Trick or Treat event has been moved to Wednesday, October 27, from 4 to 6 pm.
This is a safe opportunity for children to trick or treat and receive goodies from downtown businesses and organizations. Trick or Treating has become an annual event in Historic Downtown Statesville, bringing over 1,500 children to downtown in past years.
“We are grateful for the flexibility of our downtown businesses and organizations to pivot and quickly reschedule this event for the community’s enjoyment on a good weather day,” said Marin Tomlin, executive director of the Downtown Statesville Development Corporation.
