VERNON - Trick-or-treaters will be hitting the streets of downtown Vernon on Halloween next week.
The Downtown Vernon Association's Treat Trail goes Tuesday, Oct. 31 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., according to a media release.
"This year there will be crosswalk marshals to try to coordinate crossing safely at the intersections," Dudley Coulter with the Downtown Association says in the release. "With so many excited little ones out there we really want the community to be aware and to take the safety of everyone into account."
Coulter says they are expecting close to 1,500 children and families for the Treat Trail.
"Watch out for them because they might not be watching out for you in their excitement to get to all the merchants."
As well, the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Fire Department will have a bonfire at 7 p.m. Hot dogs and hot chocolate will be ready by 7:15 p.m. which will precede the fireworks around 8 p.m.
A Treat Trail map, which provides a list of merchants registered, is available here.
