|10/14/2009 - Annual "Safe Streets" Halloween festival
|The Brooks County Sheriff`s Office annual "Safe Streets"
Halloween festival, a tradition for Brooks County trick-or-treaters, will once
again be on the Brooks County Court House Lawn. A Halloween event designed with
the safety of Brooks County children in mind has grown each year, with
approximately 3000 children attending last year.
Hotdogs, drinks, candy and
face painting for the squeamish and young at heart will be at the Court House
Gazebo while brave trick-or-treaters will be terrified as they pass through the
haunted house to find ghouls and goblins behind every turn. Children under the
age of five will find a pumpkin patch to make their trick-or treating experience
a night to remember.
We are planning to provide safe tricks and treats to
4,000 children this year, stated Sheriff Mike Dewey. Fun, laughter, and screams
fill the air, while Brooks County children enjoy a safe evening of tricks-and-
treats. Dewey further stated. Everyone is invited, come out and join ghouls and
goblins from the Brooks County Sheriffs Office beginning at 3:30 p.m. for a safe
and spooky Halloween night.
