WHEATLAND – Covid has changed our daily lives in more ways than anyone could have imagined. But the kids of Platte County breathed a sigh of relief when Halloween was still able to go forward.
There were concessions and losses. The Platte County Legacy Home was unable to allow Trick-or-treaters through their doors which as a disappointment for young and old. Masks were worn of the medical variety on-top-of or in-place-of costume ones. But Downtown Trick or Treat sponsored by Platte County Main Street was as popular as ever. Perhaps even more so.
This year, businesses outside of downtown and individuals were invited to participate with “Trunk or Treat” where they could park vehicles in the street and hand out candy from their trunks. The extra candy possibilities were considered a bonus for the princesses, super heroes and monsters in attendance and also helped to bring more members of Wheatland together to celebrate our community.
