Sep 21, 2012 - By Katie Roenigk, Staff WriterWith Halloween only 40 days away, city leaders are requesting donations of candy for Riverton's annual Trick-or-Treat Main Street celebration.
Every year on Oct. 31, crowds of local children put on their Halloween costumes and head to Main Street, where they collect treats from Riverton's downtown business owners.
Riverton City Councilwoman Diana Mahoney said they go through a lot of candy during the event.
"The number of kids on Main Street is outstanding," Mahoney said at a recent council meeting. "So any donations of candy is greatly appreciated."
Bags of candy can be dropped off at the Riverton Chamber of Commerce, 213 W. Main St.
Mahoney invited families to make a stop at City Hall on Halloween as well.
City administrator Steven Weaver said his costumed staff will lead children through the building at 816 N. Federal Blvd., stopping at spooky stations along the way.
