Zombies wanting candy?

GREENVILLE — Hundreds of vampires, witches, ghosts and maybe a few zombies are expected to prowl the streets of downtown Greenville in the near future, but chances are they are just going to be looking for candy.

The City of Greenville, along with Hunt County, DrugFree Greenville and downtown merchants are hosting Halloween on the Square from 4 to 6 p.m. October 31.

Lee, Stonewall, Washington and Johnson Streets bordering the Hunt County Courthouse Square will be closed and businesses will be opening their doors for trick-or-treaters. Halloween on the Square has been known to draw more than 1,000 children and their parents to participate.

Live music will be performed by the Blandelles and $1 hot dogs will be offered during the evening.

There will be costume contests for ages 0-3, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12 and there are also expected to be inflatable slides and a bounce house. Additional information about Halloween on the Square is available by calling 903-457-3138.

— The Haunted Landmark, presented by the Greenville Rotary Club and the Greenville Rotary Post Office Foundation will operate between 7 p.m. and midnight every Friday and Saturday in October and also on Halloween night.

Tickets for The Haunted Landmark, which is said to be 30 percent larger than last year’s inaugural effort, are $12 per person, although those wishing to tour the attraction can “like” it on Facebook for a discount groups of 10 or more can also receive a discount and can arrange for a private tour. Those touring The Haunted Landmark are warned they do so at their own risk.

All profits raised from operating the attraction will be put back into the community by way of the Rotary Club’s charity projects and scholarships. Those wanting additional information can call Bob Arrington at 903-883-4206 or Gloria Jordan at 903-454-2345 during normal working hours.
