Jasper and Pickens County GA Halloween Festivities: Trick or Treating Schedule

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Partners

It looks like this year in Jasper and Pickens County, Georgia, the opportunity for the kids to get out and do some trick-or-treating will extend over a three-day period . . .

On Friday afternoon portions of Main Street will be closed off and local merchants will be giving out candy and treats to trick-or-treaters between 4 pm and 6 pm. This is a great opportunity to support our downtown business district and have a safe, daylight environment (especially for smaller children), in which to collect treats.

In typical elbow-bumping fashion, characteristic of the relationship between the mayor and county commissioner, the county and city have chosen to differ on the "official" trick-or-treat schedule.  The county commissioner has recommended Saturday as the best time for families to take to the street, from dusk until 8 pm, since this is not a school night and more flexible for those with church commitments on Sunday.  The mayor, on the other hand, insists that since Sunday is "officially" Halloween, those living within the city limits of Jasper, trick-or-treating shouldn't take a back seat to trivialities like church and school. Therefore, in Jasper itself, the "official" Halloween celebration is from 6 - 9 pm on Sunday, providing another opportunity for those who want one more shot at filling the treat basket.

Of course, it seems that since the city of Jasper is within the county, and since Saturday makes more sense and is probably more convenient than Sunday for a number of families, there will likely be many trick-or-treaters in Jasper itself on Saturday night, regardless of the mayor's guidance.  And in my view, other than the die-hards who have candy in stock for both nights (or choose to only be available Sunday), many doors will be closed to those who wait until Sunday, risking disappointment for the little ones. With that in mind, Saturday evening may be the best shot. But that's just my opinion . . .
