Don’t be scared to come downtown for “Boo on Broad”

Halloween trick or treating will hopefully be much safer and better organized this year thanks to a coordinated effort by the Cairo-Grady County Chamber of Commerce, Archway Partnership and downtown merchants.
Officials and merchants are gearing up for the first ever “Boo on Broad” to be held on Thursday afternoon, Oct. 31, 2013, in downtown Cairo.
“This will be a family fun event and offers a safe trick or treating experience for all children,” said event coordinator Jennifer Majors, executive vice president of the chamber of commerce.
Children ages 12 and under are encouraged to participate and all are asked to come in their costumes.
“Boo on Broad” will begin at 3 p.m. and will run until 5 p.m.
Each child can have a free photo of themselves taken in their costume at Roddenbery Memorial Library and, at 5:30 p.m., there will be a free showing of Hotel Transylvania at the Zebulon Theater.
Broad Street will be closed to thru traffic from the intersection of First Avenue N.E. to Second Avenue S.E. during the “Boo on Broad” festival.
Children trick or treating outside that section of downtown at participating merchants and businesses are asked to remain on the sidewalks and cross the street only at designated cross walks.
“Please be on the lookout for all of our little ghosts and goblins,” Mrs. Majors said.
