I think it starts @ 6 or 6;30 , you had to stand in line and get a number then stand in line and get candy. When we go there they had handed out all number and candy and it was maybe 7;30. Also be prepares it is extra crowded , but much safer. ANd they had characters adn things there .So have fun and also check out the churches they are having good things going on too. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Ask around before going. Last year lots of kids came, but it was totally disorganized. Why do kids trick or treat? To get candy. Well, getting candy at Trunk or Treat last year was hard to do. Most people left there and trick or treated down McKinney like they usually do because their kids came away from Trunk or Treat with hardly any candy.
We won't be going back this year.

You sound like a very greedy, get all you can type person. The people who participate in Trunk or Treat are VOLUNTEERS. They donate their candy, decorations, time and efforts (Hard, cold, work handing out candy and greeting that many people,- one right after the other). I bet you got home with a couple of sacks of candy and the volunteers got home with empty gas tanks, empty wallets and only their good memories of a few who actually appreciated their efforts. People like you gripe about and ruin everything. Enjoy everything for what it is and if you don't like... please, do us all a favor and move on. By the way, have you ever tried to estimate how many kids 'might' come by and how many pieces of candy to give each one? And guess what else, if you way over buy candy, you can not return it. Guess FYI has money to burn and obviously not much experience 'doing' anything.

Handing out candy is "hard, cold work"?

Being completely unappreciated for it makes it even harder. A little warmth shown by those who get candy FOR FREE would make it less cold.

I don't agree that it is hard work but it is voluntary and they do spend their money and make the effort to come out and make the evening enjoyable for the children.

I am not usually one to stick up for the mainstreet board and especially not for the chamber but I think they did a pretty good job of putting things together and there was no way they could really estimate how many would show up for the event. I think that the participants did the best they could and I bet this year they will be a little better prepared. There were some things I think could have been done better but I appreciate their efforts at least they are trying to offer some thing. I will probably take my little ones again this year.

I agree with only one thing here, It could have used just a little more orginazation. The point being, I felt that all the kids should be going in the same direction. But.......I even had a great time down there....I enjoy seeing all the little goblins, and It was a great idea for the town to come up with, It also drew people away from all the traffic. The little ones here, had way more that their share of enough candy!! I hope they do this every year!! Good work Guys!!!

Yes it is hard, cold, work, when you are not in the comfort of your own home, when you are trying to do something nice... when you are out on the street with narry a bathroom in sight. It is a labor of love and and too bad that people like you seem to make so light of the volunteer's efforts. Go eat a cookie, lay on the couch til school is out, then get out and grab all the goodies you can, after all it is free and effortless-- doesn't sound to me like you (Parent) has it too hard either. Go to some other site and try to smear someone else.

Have you noticed when there is something done for the public, any event, there is always someone that complains because it's quote, unquote,
unorganized, was to early in the day, to late in the day, wrong time of year, Heritage Days, blah, blah, blah.

I've heard people complain about the rock concerts at the park for the youth, yet there was no problems. I heard remarks about the Fourth of July parade, about the concert that evening at the park. Shucks, the Lord blessed the veterans with over $1,600.00 for their vans at a bake sale and yet some people had comments to make about that.

I wonder how many complaints there will be when People Loving People serve a nice, free Thanksgiving Dinner to people in the community?

A group of people can work so hard for days or weeks, sometimes for months to make an event nice, fun, for the public and yet they have to hear complaints from the very ones that do nothing but sit around and gripe. The funny thing about it is that those that complain, if you will notice, are the ones that sit back and let others do All the work and then they have the GULL to complain.

I know we're not always happy with things we go to, but instead of having snide remarks to make, be one of those type that will step up to the plate the next time and help out. Who knows, your ideas may be just the thing that could make a difference and no one would be able to complain because it was a perfect event.

It breaks my heart to hear complaints from people about events when you know the ones that put on these events do it out of love from their heart. When we, as a Nation can become PEOPLE LOVING PEOPLE, we will stop the complaining and start helping.

But then again, you can't please all of the people all of the time.

We went last year, but I think we are going to scope it out before we try it again. I heard that is was going to be more organized and spread out this year. I think it is a great idea for a bigger kid, but my kids are all small...so they nor myself have the patience to be in such a huge crowd! We will probably go to a few neighborhoods in town and then maybe to East Rogersville or Henards. Happy Halloween and Safe Trick or Treating to everyone!!

I applaud those who volunteered their time, candy, & efforts for last years trunk or treat. It was crowded but what do you expect? The organizers had no idea how many people would show up. That was outof their hands. The only complaint I had was how rude some of the people were. Not the volunteers but the ones that were there for the candy. It was a safer alternative & made it much easier on dear ole dad here. I would like to pre-thank those who are working it this year. My family will be there with our blood & entrails a dangling.

We had a blast last year. The kids loved it and I appreciate all the people involved. We will be going back this year, we may also trick or treat at a few houses but between Trunk or Treat and the relative's houses, we have more candy than we need.

No one should ever complain about volunteers, especially about not getting enough "free" candy.

The children register on the east end of downtown in front of Citizens Bank. Then the children should be traveling east to west towards the Post Office to collect their candy.

Starts at 5:00.
