The Tradition Continues

THE TRADITION CONTINUES. A tradition that began more than three decades ago in downtown Cleveland will continue this Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31 from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. It’s time for Trick-Or-Treat on  Broadway. Trick-or-treaters can begin their rounds by beginning at one of the four corners, going counter-clockwise from OnCue south to the future home of Wild Country Meats (former movie theater), crossing the street to Dollar General and going north to the Palace Drug strip of stores.  Downtown merchants are encouraged to participate by handing out treats to likely more than 1,500 children who will be dressed in everything from the most popular animated TV character to super heroes to the scariest of goblins, ghosts and witches. Organizations and off-Broadway businesses also take part in the give-away by setting up in front of vacant buildings or filling the space for businesses that are not participating. Due to there no longer being a Chamber of Commerce, the City of Cleveland and Police Department are overseeing this event.
