Your review: Halloween show
Nelson Otto, City of Jefferson
I have noticed in the past and really noticed this year the number of Trunk or Treats. I would like to suggest something new for Halloween. A Spooktacular Halloween celebration on Halloween night in downtown Jefferson City.
Beginning at sundown, most organizations that have chests or goodies would be invited to meet in downtown Jefferson City. Different organizations could set up kiosks or tents along the streets to distribute candy and make it more inclusive. Companies like Scholastic, etc., would be asked to donate books, toys and gift certificates for children with food allergies.
These cabins would be marked with purple pumpkins.
The Governor’s Mansion would open for tours and a non-spooky Halloween. Street lamps would be transformed into glowing pumpkins. Flowerbeds and hanging pots with fall colored plants and brightly colored leaves.
The jail could be open for Halloween night tours and a trolley would transport visitors from the main downtown area to and from the jail and parking lots. The McRaven Ballroom Flash mob could be invited to perform. Bringing together the efforts of many groups in a joint extravaganza that would draw attention and people from across central Missouri.
