Manchester Trick-Or-Treaters Celebrate Halloween On Friday


by Jeff Tang

MANCHESTER, Tenn. - There's a debate going on across the mid- state, whether to celebrate Halloween on Saturday or Sunday.

Well in one mid-state town, the answer is neither.

Manchester celebrated Halloween on Friday, kicking the holiday off with its fourth annual Safe on the Square event, hosted by the Children's Advocacy Center.

The city decided to officially observe the holiday on Friday. More than 2,000 kids attended the trick or treat celebration.

Downtown Manchester was a gold mine for costumed boys and girls, with 61 different businesses shelling out candy and other treats for the little ones.

While this event is ideal for younger kids, older trick-or-treaters got a chance to trick or treat in neighborhoods until 10 p.m.

Putting the two different occasions, and doing something a little differently than everyone else just seemed to make sense this year.

"We just said no, we're going to do it Friday. We're not going to debate on it, we're just going with Friday," said Heather Kleinfeld with the Children's Advocacy Center.

"It doesn't matter to me as long as he gets to experience the things I got to experience when I was young," said Samantha Sennett, who went to the event with her son Donovan.

Many cities in the mid-state have decided to celebrate on Saturday, some are observing it on Halloween, and others are leaving it up to the public.
