By Amanda McBride The Choctaw Plaindealer

Only a few more days until the Spooktacular Parade and Trunk or Treat in downtown Ackerman.

The Choctaw County Chamber of Commerce invites children, ages 0-12, and their parents to the Spooktacular Parade and Truck or Treat on October 30 beginning at 6 p.m.

Children and their parents are encouraged to meet at the walking track in downtown Ackerman at 6 p.m. for the Spooktacular Parade. Children will parade around part of the walking track then everyone is invited to immediately head over to the parking lot near the Train Depot on Main Street for a Trunk or Treat.

While at the Spooktacular Parade don’t forget to vote for your favorite scarecrow in the Scarecrow Trail, sponsored by the Choctaw County Master Gardeners.

Also remember that Main Street and part of Commerce Street will be blocked during the Spooktacular Parade and Trunk or Treat for the safety of the children.
