The community is once again invited to bring their little ghouls, goblins and ghosts to Boonanza at the Fayette County Fairgrounds for a free night of trick or treating.
Starting at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31, the community can join the Record-Herald, the Fayette County Agricultural Society and many other sponsors for an indoor beggar’s night until 7 p.m. During the evening, the room will be filled with representatives from these sponsors passing out candy to all of the children who attend.
This year sponsors include the VFW Post 3762, Doug Marine Motors, Great Clips, Merchants National Bank, Bennett Bros Salvage, Southern State, Beford Ford Lincoln, Tony’s Welding, the Fayette Co. Ag. Society, the Record-Herald, the Fayette Co. Republicans, the YMCA, Fayette Pharmacy, Fayette Soil & Water, Gusweiler GM & Toyota, CAC Early Learning Center and Barker’s Towing.
“I want to encourage people to bring out their little ones because it is going to be a great, safe time for everyone,” Katie Bottorff, Record-Herald general manager, said. “This is also a great opportunity to learn about 4-H because we are partnering with the Ag Society. We are also encouraging the community to bring a non-perishable food item for the food pantry. Doug Marine Motors will be providing a pick-up truck and we are going to put all of those donations together and take them to the food pantry.”
For more information or to become a sponsor for Boonanza, call the Record-Herald at (740) 335-3611.
“This is something we have done for many years and hope to continue to do,” Bottorff said.
