Halloween event to mark ninth year

PLATTSBURGH — The City of Plattsburgh, WPTZ News Channel 5 and NBT-Latremore’s Insurance Agency will present the ninth-annual Trick-or-Treat on Safety Street from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26.

The Crete Civic Center will once again host this popular event. It will be transformed into a neighborhood where children can go from “house to house” and gather goodies without the worries of cars, strangers or tainted candy.

“We are always excited to put this event on,” City Recreation Superintendent Steve Peters said in a news release. “Our staff really gets into it and makes it fun. With the overwhelming support from area businesses and thousands of children dressed up in costumes, it’s definitely an event that should not be missed.”

Individuals and businesses have the opportunity to own a “home” on Safety Street that will be visited by thousands of local children who are accompanied by their parents.

In exchange for sponsorship, houses will be constructed, painted and decorated by the Recreation Department. Each house will have prominently displayed signs advertising “the owner” of the house.

There is limited space available for this event, so businesses are being encouraged to reserve their houses as quickly as possible. That can be done online at or by contacting the Recreation Department office at 324-7709.
