Carthage Main Street’s Halloween on the Square is back! In its eighth year, the event will be Sunday, Oct. 31 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Carthage Main Street Manager Cindy Deloney says, "It’s just a way to say thank you to the community for your business, that sort of thing. It’s not meant for people to come downtown and shop. That’s not why we’re doing it. We want to remind people what we have downtown plus have the community come together. It is just a way to say thank you to the community for shopping local. Everybody is very excited and wanting to go above and beyond this year because we weren’t able to do it last year. I think if you’ve come in the past, you’re going to be surprised at some of the differences, and if you’ve never joined us down there, come see because it’s going to be a lot of fun."
The link to sign up to join downtown is listed below You can join for free or buy in for $25 to get 1000-1200 pieces of candy from Main Street. "Your choice," says Deloney, "but either way we hope you join us downtown."
