Halloween comes to North 5th Street

Princesses, Transformer robots, vampires, children, teens and adults walked up and down Olney’s 5th Street stretch of businesses for Halloween treats.  On Oct. 31 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. businesses on North 5th street offered free sweets to trick or treaters. 

“It has been a long-standing tradition,” said director of The North 5th Street Revitalization Project Melissa Kim .  “But this year we wanted to put them all on the same program.  That way everyone knows.”

It was optional for businesses to offer Halloween treats but those that volunteered had an official time of 4:00 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Monday Oct. 31 to hand out treats.  Orange flyers made by The North 5th Street Revitalization Project were tapped to the participating business’ windows with the start and end times and suggestion that all trick or treaters take off any masks before they enter the store.

An orange flyer was found on most store fronts and many residents went store to store for free candy.

The North 5th Street Revitalization Project also has plans for the upcoming holiday season with business owners donating to a food drive for needy families in the area during the holidays.
