Downtown Hartsville will be taken over by mummies, bats, princesses, pirates, ghosts and superheroes walking the streets and looking for treats at downtown shops, restaurants, and businesses when Main Street Hartsville hosts its annual Treats on the Streets event on Thursday from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Each year, this safe, free, Halloween-themed event is a major attraction for families and children. The 2018 event had several thousand people walking the streets as they went door to door trick-or-treating at businesses along East Carolina Avenue, West Carolina Avenue, 5th Street and East College Avenue.
The Hartsville Police Department will be closing streets to vehicular traffic from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Fifth Street will be closed from Cargill Way to Home Avenue and Carolina Avenue will be closed from Fourth Street to Sixth Street.
The event will also feature a Hocus Pocus Costume Contest and Strut Your Mutt Dog Costume Contest in Centennial Park sponsored by SPC Credit Union. Those interested, should register in advance at mainstreethartsville.org/programs/hocus-pocus-costume-contest-registration. Check out the event page on Facebook for more details!
The Third annual Downtown Scarecrow Contest will accompany the Treats on the Streets event.
