The First Hinckley Halloween Haunt

The collaboration among the Hinckley Chamber of Commerce merchants, led by Kristyn Kolozvary of Greensmith Garden Center, was great fun for everyone who came. Thank you all! Great pictures, courtesy of The Post Newspaper.

PrintThe lights are on, the treats are waiting, but cries of “trick-or-treat” rarely ring out anymore in many Hinckley neighborhoods. Residents living in areas without sidewalks miss seeing the kids’ Halloween costumes and excitement. Well, things are about to change.

Saturday, October 25, between 4:30 and 6:30 pm

Area businesses are opening their doors to trick-or-treaters with an array of activities, snacks and treats. The Hinckley Fire Department will have the fire engines on display. And residents who wish to dress up and bring a bucket of goodies to hand out to kids are welcome to join in the fun! Kristyn Kolozvary, Hinckley resident and proprietor of Greensmith Garden Center, knew she wanted to do something extra fun for Halloween at her store. With the mindset of “the more the merrier”, she walked door-to-door asking commercial neighbors if they’d like to do something too. When the new Hinckley Chamber of Commerce got wind of it, the idea was the presented to and embraced by members as an opportunity to create a meet-the-neighbors event, one which the Chamber wants to do more.

Gathering the Ghosts Downtown

Just last year, Hinckley installed downtown sidewalks to make a safe walkway along both sides of Ridge Road from the post office to Center Road. The event will take place in this area and the Fire Department. Hinckley Police will help with crossing 303, and free parking will be available at the post office, Hinckley Animal Hospital, Hinckley Historical Society, and Hinckley Elementary. Pick up maps at Greensmith Garden Center, 1340 Ridge Road, where there will also be a pumpkin carving contest during the event. The Hinckley Halloween Haunt is a grassroots event put on by area businesses and residents. Children must be accompanied by an adult. To participate, contact Kristyn Kolozvary at 330.278.7112.
