According to Jamie Henderson, of the Milbank Chamber, over 800 kids collected candy and treats on Main Street in Milbank during Treat Street 2022 on Halloween night.
The Chamber sponsored the event and Henderson said over 30 businesses or organizations also participated. The weather was unseasonably warm and families took the opportunity to enjoy the boo-tiful evening downtown.
Milbank Area Retired Teachers-Personnel Association (MARTA) created a station to hand out candy and pencils. Rhonda Preller, president of MARTA, said, “We gave away 600 pencils and 1000 pieces of candy, but it was so busy, we were out by 6:35 p.m.
“It’s exciting to see the community come together for this fun annual event, to see the creativity, and to witness the joy it brings to the kids,” Henderson added. “A big ‘Thank You’ to all who participated.”
