Screen shot 2013-10-28 at 4.58.17 PMAn event-Started 24 years ago – has become a tradition for the people of Freeland. 

Started by former mayor Tim Martin, the original intent of throwing a safe trick or treat night was so that parents could remain worry free taking their kids out for halloween.

Community members said they have a lot less to worry about.

Now – Hundreds of people gather to celebrate not only a spooky holiday  and a safe environment, but also a sense of community.

Formally hosted by the mayor, this year is the 1st year the freeland rec board has hosted the event, saying that it was a tradition they were not ready to see let go.

Stretching over 3 blocks, trick or treaters not only got the chance to collect candy and show off their costumes-  but also – recieve a special treat from the Free library.

With the roads blocked off – businesses and organizations were able to show their support while passing out candy.
