MOULTRIE -- It's a boo-tiful thing when a community can get into the Halloween spirit together.
Friday night is fright night this year, and while many in the community will be venturing to Douglas to see the Packers play, those staying in town will have plenty to do.
Ghouls, goblins and the like up to 13 years old can trick-or-treat downtown businesses from 4:30 to 6 p.m. provided they are in costume and accompanied by an adult.
From 4:45 to 5:45 p.m., children can sign up for a costume contest at the amphitheater on the courthouse square sponsored by the Moultrie Junior Women's Club. The contest itself will begin at 6 p.m.
When darkness falls, children can enter the pumpkin walk around the square. The jack o'lantern must be named and brought to the square between 3 and 5:15 p.m. Prizes will go to first, second and third places.
As part of the Halloween festivities, Moultrie Fire Department will open the fire safety house onsite, and the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office DARE officers will offer fingerprinting
Moultrie Community Network Service will be giving away a free television.
The event is sponsored by the City of Moultrie, the Downtown Moultrie Association, Moultrie Junior Women's Club, CNS and Colquitt County.
