Halloween is quickly approaching and for all kids, young and old, it’s about getting the most candy you can.  Going door to door can be a challenge to get a lot of candy, but you get the benefit of walking and meeting your neighbors, however there are alternatives to the traditional door to door route.  Jacksonville’s giving trick or treaters an alternative to door to door trick or treating with Street Sweets on Halloween night.

The Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce expects more than 4000 kids to attend this years event (which has been revamped from last year).  Halloween night the Norman Activity Center’s parking lot will be turned into one big trick or treating site with festivities being targeted to those kids 12 and younger.  The kids can trick or treat local businesses to get candy in the parking lot.

The even is a little different from last year, because many businesses were overwhelmed from all the trick or treaters, this year there will be a controlled entrance and exit according to the Chamber of Commerce press release and there will be an admission charge this year.  Admission into Street Sweets will be a canned good, bag of candy or $1 per family.  This is a great way for kids to learn that you don’t always get things for free, you have to give to recieve.  All donated canned goods will benefit the non-profit organization HOPE (Helping Others Persue Enrichment), the monetary donations will benefit the crisis center and all donated bags of candy will be given out to kids Halloween night.

Street Sweets runs 5p – 6p at the Norman Activity Center in Jacksonville and is located at 526 E. Commerce St. in Jacksonville.
