Trick-or-treating begins tonight

By Lenny C. Lepola -

While All Hollows Eve falls on Saturday this year, area drivers are reminded to drive with care as trick-or-treaters will be out and about tonight, tomorrow evening, as well as Saturday.

The village of Sunbury will hold its traditional Beggars Night tonight, Oct. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. When Sunbury Village Council members discussed scheduling Beggars Night, they decided to avoid Friday or Saturday evenings that typically have more cars of the road.

The village of Galena’s Beggars Night is scheduled for tomorrow evening, Friday, Oct. 30. Ghosts and goblins will be knocking on Galena neighborhood doors between 6 and 7:15 p.m.

Galena’s annual Halloween costume contest will follow at 7:30 p.m. at Galena Village Hall, 109 Harrison St. Judges will be looking for the best ghouls, goblins, pirates and princesses. Costumes will be judged for first, second and third places for age groups 0-4, 5-7, 8-10, 11 and up, and for costumed groups.

Genoa Township’s neighborhood Beggars Night will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31.

Organizers of all Beggars Night activities encourage drivers to use extra caution on roads and while driving in area neighborhoods.
