Laurel Board of Trade hosts Trick or Treat on Main Street -- Gazette.Net


The Laurel Board of Trade will be holding its annual Trick or Treat on Main Street from 6 to 8 p.m. today.

Laurel spokesman Peter Piringer said the event draws large crowds of trick or treaters and their families to Laurel’s historic Main Street area.

“They restrict traffic along Main Street, local traffic only, and then thousands of people show up,” Piringer said. “The store owners and vendors dress up and hand out candy. It’s a huge event. It’s pretty impressive.”

The Laurel City Council, Laurel police and volunteer fire and rescue members will also be on hand, providing literature and treats, Piringer said.

No pets are allowed, and children 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

The official city of Laurel Trick or Treat will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31, according to a news release.
