The Dade County Public Library hosted the Drive-by Halloween Trick or Treating event on Oct. 24 at the Dade County High School parking lot.
The fun started at 4:30 p.m. when cars would drive by each booth and collect candy for children. The event lasted until 6:30 p.m. and was a big success.
Dade County Public Library Manager Marshanna Sharp said there were 20 booths in total representing many of the governing bodies, authorities and small businesses of Dade. Some of these include the Bank of Dade, the County Commission, the City of Trenton’s Commission, Dade County Sheriff’s Office, Trenton Police Department, Integer, 911 EMA, Moore’s Funeral Home, Trenton-Dade Optimist, Friends of the Library and many, many more.
Sharp said that tickets were given to each car that passed by, with the number of children in the car being written on the tickets. Over 167 tickets were given out and a total of 367 of children came through.
“We hope everyone had a good time [Saturday],” Sharp said. “Thank you all for coming. Thanks to all who helped put this together.”
