Only a few days until the 10th annual Treat Street! For over a decade, the South Atlanta Civic League has hosted this ebullient event full of candy, costumes, and creativity! The idea for Treat Street sprouted when neighbors noticed kids going trick-or-treating in their regular clothes on Halloween. While the candy was great, neighbors saw an opportunity to build a more whimsical experience for kids growing up. And so Treat Street still offers candy and other treats, but you might have to chomp it as it dangles from a string!
We love collaborating with the Civic League and other community partners on an event that truly brings our community together. As we looked back at photos from the many years of treat street, we’re amazed to see how children from our neighborhood have grown up. The small turtle from five years ago may very well be running the Haunted Woods with other teenagers this year! What a gift it’s been to go through life through such a sweet way.
To get in on the imaginative fun, come by the South Atlanta Park on October 27 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.
