Trick or treat on Trade has come and gone.

Somewhere in greater Greer are hundreds of pounds of candy distributed by merchants to ghosts, witches, superheroes, princesses, pirates, Wizard of Oz lookalikes, dinosaurs and about every kind of character imaginable.

Trick and treat on Trade appeared to set another record turnout Tuesday – some reports indicated thousands. No one would challenge that figure.

It was also the most organized, patient cast of Halloween characters and their parents to traipse around the sidewalks on Trade and Poinsett streets and the Depot.

Some of these same children may make a return trip to Greer on Saturday. This time it’s Halloween Hoopla at City Park from 4-8 p.m. Games and crafts will be available at the free event.

Of course it’s another chance for kids to get another stash of candy.

Meanwhile, downtown merchants will regroup and begin budgeting their candy funds for Halloween 2017.
