Trunk-or-Treats at G’ville, Dora are Halloween night, Monday, Oct. 31

The Ozark County Chamber of Commerce has confirmed that the Ozark County Trunk-or-Treat held around the Gainesville square will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Halloween night, Monday, Oct. 31. 

Children and adolescents in costume can visit vehicles parked on the square to receive candy or other treats. Those receiving candy should bring their own bag or bucket to be filled with Halloween goodies. 

Residents wishing to pass out items can park around the inner and outer edges of the square before 5:30 p.m. and bring candy, toys or other treats to hand out from a decorated car trunk, table or other Halloween display area near the vehicle. There is no need to sign up beforehand. Organizers say they’ve given away over 600 pieces of candy at recent events. 

The event is always held on Halloween night, no matter what day of the week Halloween falls on, organizers say. 

Free parking is available at the Gainesville Saddle Club Grounds and at the former Klayman dentist office on Main Street. 

The Dora Saddle Club has also announced that its trunk-or-treat event will be held Halloween night. 

The event is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. at the Dora School parking lot.

A costume contest sponsored by Roy’s Store offers up cash prizes (first place: $20, second place: $15, and third place $10). 

As part of the event, the movie “Hocus Pocus 2” will be played in the school’s cafeteria after the trunk-or-treating is complete.
