The Gilmer Police Department will sponsor their 11th annual “Treats on the Square,” a safe alternative to Halloween, on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 5 to 8 p.m.

They are asking for participants to contact them at 903-843-5545 by Oct. 8 to reserve spots.

The annual event is a safer alternative to trick or treating.

“As always, this is our way of offering a safer alternative to our community’s youth on the night of trick or treat, while promoting our downtown merchants, and the Gilmer Police Department’s Community Policing Project,” said Assistant Police Chief T.J. Harris.

Participation is not limited to businesses and individuals in Gilmer, Harris said. All are welcome to help put on this event.

Individuals may choose to pass out treats of their choice from their designated Treat Stop Spot. Spots will be assigned upon the final count of all parties participating.

There will also be a pumpkin decorating contest again this year for both adults and children.

Last year, there were 62 participants, with 14 individuals or businesses that made donations.
