Greenwood High School students will be giving back to the community on Halloween night by passing out candy on the "Halloween Trail" – the city walking trail. Over 75 high school students will be dressed in silly, non-scary costumes and stationed along a half mile track of the City Walking Trail. A shuttle bus will be parked at the Greenwood Street Building on Bell Road and will shuttle kids and their parents to the entrance of the trail at the corner of Atlanta and Coker every 15 minutes.
Parking is available nearby and parents are encouraged to the walk the trail with their kids as no escorts will be provided. City firemen will be stationed at the entrance to pass out glow in the dark necklaces and trick or treaters can walk the Halloween Trail and collect candy from 15 different locations. The Halloween Trial ends as trick or treaters exit through the fire truck bay at the Fire station. Local fireman will pass out fire safety kits and more candy will be distributed compliments of the Mayor’s Office and the local police.
The trail is for kids 7th grade and under. The trail will open at 5:30 and close at 8:00. The last shuttle run will be at 7:45. Because of minimal lighting, everyone is encouraged to bring a flashlight. Any business, church or organization which would like to provide wrapped/labeled candy may donate by contacting the high school office at 996-4141. By providing this Halloween Trail, Greenwood High School would like to say thanks to the community for their support of all their academic and athletic activities though the school year.
