Main Street in Mississippi is always a charming place, but it takes on a whole new level of enchantment during “Merchants Trick or Treat.” Participating stores on and near Main Street will be decked out in Halloween decorations, and they’ll be waiting to greet your little ghouls and goblins with delicious treats. It’s not just about candy either; you might find some shops offering discounts or special Halloween-themed items.

One of the things that makes Mississippi so special is its strong sense of community. “Merchants Trick or Treat” is not just about collecting candy; it’s about bringing our town together. As you stroll down Main Street, you’ll meet friends, neighbors, and fellow residents, all sharing in the Halloween spirit. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with your community, strengthen bonds, and create lasting memories.

Local law enforcement and volunteers will be on hand to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone. Parents, you can rest easy knowing that your little ones are in good hands.
