Treat Street welcomes large crowd despite rain delay

Children walk through Stancil Exposition Center to gather candy during Treat Street, an annual trick-or-treating event hosted by the Unity Committee of Cleveland and the City of Cleveland.

The Tenth Annual Treat Street, hosted by the Unity Committee of Cleveland and the City of Cleveland, was hailed a success despite a one-day rain delay that kept some booth vendors from turning out due to scheduling and manpower problems.

The annual trick-or-treating event was held on Nov. 1 this year under the roof of the Stancil Exposition Center rodeo arena. Children competed for prizes for Best Costume while the booth vendors competed for bragging rights and trophies.

The top vendor booths were Southside Elementary, first place; McCoy’s, second place; and El Burrito, third place. Owen Thompson also claimed first place in a Thriller Dance-Off and earned a $50 gift card donated by Bluebonnet News Editor Vanesa Brashier.

Cleveland City Manager Kelly McDonald says she was pleased to see so many people at the event.

“The turnout has been awesome. Even with having to posting the event for a day, everyone still came out. I am very pleased,” McDonald said. “The dance-off was a hit. The kids had fun and that’s the main thing.”
