Area prepares for spooky Halloween events

By Josette Keelor

Halloween will scare up fun Thursday as area children take to the streets in search of the best sweets and treats. But to help avoid obstacles for trick-or-treaters, towns, counties and area law enforcement offices have asked residents to adhere to prearranged times for candy seekers.

In Front Royal, trick-or-treating will be the main event with the town's fifth Hometown Halloween from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Gazebo at the Village Commons.

The event provides a safe and controlled environment for children in Front Royal and Warren County to enjoy trick or treating with their families along East Main Street from Royal Avenue to Blue Ridge. The route will be closed to traffic for two hours so children can walk in safety while visiting businesses along the route. Businesses and nonprofits not on Main Street are also allowed to participate.

The Warren County Sheriff's Department will co-host the event and plans to offer a Haunted Bus.

For more information, email info@downtownfrontroyal.org or visit Hometown Halloween on Facebook. Front Royal also will observe Halloween between the hours of 6:30 and 9 p.m. Thursday. All trick-or-treaters should be off the streets by 9 p.m., and the Front Royal Police Department will have additional officers on patrol to help ensure community safety.

For more information, visit www.frontroyalva.com or call 540-635-8007.

Frederick County has not listed any official trick-or-treating hours for Halloween, but Winchester will have trick-or-treating until 9 p.m., Middletown from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and Stephens City from 5 to 8:30 p.m.

In Shenandoah County, Strasburg will have trick-or-treating from 5 to 8 p.m., Edinburg from 6 to 9 p.m., Mount Jackson from 6 to 9 p.m., and New Market from 5 to 9 p.m.

According to the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office, Woodstock and the county have not listed specific times.

In Clarke County, Berryville will hold trick-or-treating from 6 to 8:30 p.m., and the town recommends all pedestrians wear reflective clothing.
